A new free-play program, for children aged up to five years, is coming to Canterbury-Bankstown.
MIISC Kids will start on Monday 7 May and be held at the Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre (MIISC) every Monday and Wednesday during school terms, from 9.30-11.30am.
It will have a range of different activities set up for children to enjoy and practice their gross motor skills, including:
Entry is $4.50 per child, with children aged under six months, free. Parents are welcome to participate with their child, or enjoy a coffee or snack at the newly renovated MIISC Café, from only $2.
Mother of two, Isidora Nedelkovska, who was part of a test run, welcomed the new program.
"I can have my 16-month-old and four-year-old participating in different areas. It’s a safe space and I know they can’t run off," Ms Nedelkovska said.
"Even better is, I can easily see them both while having a coffee with friends."

"Programs like MIISC Kids introduce children to physical activity in their early years, so they will more likely continue as they get older."
Other Council commitments to promoting a healthy and active lifestyle include:
