Frogs, friends and Clamber Club!

Over 30 years ago occupational therapist Liz Senior had a dream to create a sensory motor programme for children that promoted learning in a playful way. As an OT working with children with learning difficulties, Liz wanted to make a difference in the lives of children and their parents. She also wanted to empower women by creating a business structure that would allow moms the freedom to work from home and raise their children at the same time.

And so in 1990, Clamber Club was born!

Over the years Clamber Club has grown to 5 franchised programmes that cover Baby Classes, Toddler Classes, Sports programmes for Schools, Party entertainment, Playschool and a range of Clamber Club products all featuring Jog the Frog our Clamber Club fitness mascot.
