The Perth Mums Group #UsefulPerthLists are community generated lists of some of the most helpful, fun and important places in Perth. Using the experience and opinions of Perth parents, the lists are continually updated and cover the best places for kids and parents across Perth.

Below are some of the best classes for kids in Perth as recommended by members. While this isn’t a complete list of all classes in Perth, it is a good place to start as all these venues have been recently recommended by other Perth Mums.

‘I live in Aveley and we go to State Swim in Ellenbrook. They can start at about 6 months there. It's a bit more expensive than going to Altone Park but it's close, very clean and my little one loves it. They have a lot of class times too and you can do make up classes easily which we find really convenient.’ PMG Member
