WHERE IS JUMP START FROM?
Jump Start was devised in the Australian outdoors and brought to Turkey by an Australian who lives in Izmir with his family. Our class curriculum and programs have been developed by our experienced team of physical education teachers aligned with the Australian curriculum.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM JUMP START
Active healthy fun in English!
Jump Start is a program developed in Australia that sets out to provide learning opportunities in English to students 2.5 – 8yrs of age, through participation in physical activity.
Throughout the Jump Start learning experiences, children will develop fundamental movement skills, be introduced to new sports and new sports skills, plus the children will be able to build social and personal skills which will result in positive health outcomes.
This program has been brought to Turkey by an Australian and designed the “Australian way”, which is to participate in and have a natural appreciation and enthusiasm for physical activity.
Our programs are fun and creative, with music and imaginative story telling to engage the children as much as possible.
Through this program we hope to promote that physical activity is an opportunity for fun!

In Australia there are many opportunities to learn and enjoy playing different sports, plus gaining knowledge on health and fitness. Growing up in Australia, sports, outdoors, and being active are a way of life, and we want to give children a chance to experience a more active lifestyle in Turkey from a young age.
Previously being both high level sportsman we understand the values of what sport can bring both mentally and physically especially from a young age. Jump Start gains maximum participation in our activities by creating a positive and happy environment in our sessions, and we hope for children to learn, develop skills, appreciate and enjoy physical activity.
By combining both Australian and Turkish ways of life, we hope to give children in Turkey a positive happy healthy start to life.
