School Holidays Programs FAQs – Melbourne My children need something fun to do in the School Holidays!

What if I want to cancel my booking?
There will be no refund if cancelled within 7 days of the first workshop date. Full refund minus the GST will be provided if cancelled with more than 7 days’ notice.

How many children per class?
The children will be split into groups. Each class will contain approximately 10-15 children per teacher. The children are grouped according to their age and with friends. Sometimes classes can grow to 20 children; in this incidence a second teacher will be present. There is also an additional supervisor who oversees the whole workshop and helps out were necessary.

Can my child be grouped with their friends?
Yes of course, as long as their friends are in the same age group. We want your child to have the best time possible therefore we need to group your child based on their maturity.

What if my child does not know anyone?
Do not worry; this is a perfect opportunity for your child to make new friends. The program consists of numerous team building activities, especially on the first morning which encourage the children to mix with others.

Does my child have to attend the whole program?
We strongly encourage your child to attend the whole program. Each day the children are put into groups for various activities and some activities carry on over to the following day. The children also build friendships and may be put out if someone doesn’t attend the whole program. Part attendance will need to be confirmed at the discretion of the office.

How is the day structured?
We begin each day with fun warm up activities, and then like a school day the children are put into groups and off to classes stopping for recess and lunch. The classes over the two days will consist of: Dancing, singing, acting, craft, science and cooking.

What does my child have to bring?

  • A WATER BOTTLE!
  • Recess and lunch. No allergy foods such as nuts or foods with nut traces.
  • Hat and sunscreen.
  • Clothes suitable for active classes.
  • Closed shoes suitable for running and dancing, e.g. sandshoes. (please no thongs, sandals or dress shoes).
  • Any medication.

What should my child NOT bring?

  • Food with nuts or nut traces.
  • Valuable toys, such as IPods, iPads etc.
  • Mobile phones.

If it is absolutely necessary your child brings a mobile phone or any of the above, please understand Bop Till You Drop is not liable for any loss or damage.

What happens at the party?
On the last day we have a little party where Bop Till You Drop provides party food for the children, e.g. chips, lollies, chocolate. We do understand some children have special dietary requirements, therefore if you do not want your child to participate in the party please let the staff know.

What time is the concert on the second day?
The concert is held on the second day 40 minutes before the finishing time of the workshop. We welcome and encourage all parents, guardians, grandparents, family and friends to come and witness their proud performance. They will also be awarded a certificate for their efforts.

What do they wear/bring for the concert?
If possible, we would love your child to wear red and black, but only if they already have these colours. Please do not go out and buy new clothing for the concert. If you do not have black/red tops and bottoms, the closest colour to black/red will do. Some children will bring props also.

Who are the teachers?
Bop Till You Drop employs qualified teachers, child care workers or experienced entertainers. They have all undergone an extensive training program in Occupational, Health and Safety. Bop till you Drop is a Child Safe Organisation, and practices in line with Victorian Standards. Entertainers have received Child Safe Training, as well as at least one staff member with a senior first aid certificate. You can also rest assured that all staff have been approved by the ‘Working with Children Check’ and Reference Checks.

Are you insured?
Yes, we have up to 20 million dollars Public Liability Insurance.

What about safety?
At every workshop the entertainers will run through what to do in case of an emergency, this includes incidences such as fire.

What happens to disruptive children?
Please be aware that bullying, aggressive or non-co-operative behaviour is not acceptable. If we feel the safety and interests of the other children are being jeopardised because of this behaviour you will be asked to collect your child immediately. In this incidence no refund will be made.

Testimonials See what our clients are saying!

  • We just hired Bop till you Drop to do a virtual birthday party for my 8 year old and I was soooo impressed. They did it through zoom, but they must have used professional equipment as the sound and image was amazing. Cathy the host was so friendly, energetic and full of life. My daughter and her friends loved it and didn’t want it to end. It was so nice seeing all the girls and boys on screen dancing and laughing. Cathy made my daughter feel so special. At first she was disappointed that she couldn’t have all her friends over, but by the end she was thanking me and even asked if we could do the same party next year. Thank you Bop till you Drop, you guys are a life saver!!!

  • Just a quick note to pass on our thanks for Emily’s Bop Till You Drop 5th Bday Disco party on the weekend. Lexi was amazing!! She kept the kids engaged and entertained throughout the whole party, and the disco was an absolute hit with the kids (and parents!). Lexi transformed our lounge room with her disco lights and everyone had a ball singing on the microphones, playing party games and showing off their best dance moves. The birthday girl was so happy her favourite songs were played and she felt the centre of attention. Also wonderful that even with her recently broken arm, Emily was able to join in all the games, singing, dancing and activities – in fact I think she completely forgot she had a broken arm! Have already heard from a number of parents that their kids would now like a disco party too. And of course Emily loved the party so much she wants to do the same thing next year! Thanks again.

  • Our daughter and her friends had the most wonderful time at her 5th Birthday party with the help of Bop till you Drop. Our gorgeous host kept all the kids engaged and partying on. We had so many compliments from friends on how good the entertainment was and how much fun they were all having.

  • We have just had the best school disco in years! All the kids enjoyed themselves and the energy and excitement from both Stacey and our students was amazing. All students from Kindy to Year 6 had a wonderful night, being able to get up on stage to dance and sing to their favourite song was great to see, Stacey did an amazing job! Thank you! We can’t wait to have BTYD back!
