Children can start Begin Bright class at 2 years of age with a craft and music-focused lesson, then progress into School Readiness Class at 3 for the two years before school, then move on into the primary tutoring program.
The main aim of early learning is to ensure that children have the best head start and have acquired all the skills necessary for BIG SCHOOL. From previous students now at school, our program has proven to improve children’s learning skills and put them straight to the head of the class.
Primary tutoring sessions see our fully qualified teachers work one – on – one with students who need assistance developing and consolidating stage/age appropriate skill. We also work with children who lack confidence and therefore need an all-important boost to help make further progress.
