Q: DO CHILDREN HAVE TO ATTEND ALL DAYS? A: Ideally yes as the workshop runs a certain amount of days in a certain order so your every day kids can be turned into Popstar Kidz. However if your child is unable to attend a day for certain reasons please ask before booking if this will effect your child's time at our workshop as it may depend upon the day and what they may miss
Q: ARE CHILDREN SUPERVISED AT ALL TIMES? A: YES! we have a 1 adult per 5 children ratio during each day
Q: ARE THE AGE GROUPS MIXED IN TOGETHER A: Yes and no. On the 1st day all children are together so that we can allocate children into their girl/boy band smaller groups. Once children have been placed into smaller groups of 3-5 children they will be in that group for the remainder of the workshop and with children in either MINI (prep-grade 2), TWEEN (grade 3-5), TEEN (grade 6-10). These groups will rotate to various mentors and only during lunch break and opening and closing rehearsals are they all back together again. We find that the older kids look after the younger kids and form great relationships during the workshop.
Q: ARE THE CHILDREN WITH YOU THE WHOLE DAY, LIKE IN CHILD CARE? A: Yes the children will be with us for the whole day 9am-3pm and then again for the last night's Live Concert
Q: DO I HAVE TO BUY TICKETS FOR THE LIVE SHOW? A: Yes, tickets are available to purchase on the same booking site (EVENT BRITE) as when you booked your Popstar Kidz spot. You can also click on the BOOK NOW button on this website to book show tickets.
Q: CAN WE GET THE CHILD CARE REBATE? A: Currently no but we are looking into whether or not we can be vacation care and therefore have the subsidy applied
Q: CAN MY BOY ATTEND A: ABSOLUTELY, we love (and so do the girls) having boys a part of our workshop. Boys have the option (if there are 3 boys or more in the same age bracket) to make their own boy band or they can be placed in a mixed girl/boy band.
Q: WHAT'S THE YOUNGEST AND OLDEST AGE THAT CAN ATTEND? A: The youngest are those who are in Prep. Children must already be attending school so they are familiar with the teaching structure and 9am-3pm day. It also helps if your child can read a little and follow simple instructions. The oldest is currently year 10 but we are open to those attending high school in years 11 and 12 should they wish to join our workshop or already have a formed group.
Q: ARE ALL WORKSHOPS THE SAME COST? A: NO. Pricing is all relevant depending on the mentors, activities and extras we offer during that particular workshop. Our workshops are still in the beginning stages so prices will vary as we find the best structure to suit everyone.
Q: ARE ALL YOUR WORKSHOPS THE SAME LENGTH A: They are always 9am-3pm as we find that works well with parents during the school holidays who still have to work.The concert is always on the last night with the main difference being that some of our workshops go for 3 days and others 4 or 5 days.
Q: CAN MY CHILD REQUEST WHAT GROUP THEY ARE IN? A: If they are attending for the first time a child may request to be with a friend or someone they know however if they return for another workshop they are expected to be open to changing group and making new friends
