Fun & Multi-Sensory School Readiness & Toddler classes for kids.

Book a Trial Class

School Readiness is covered in one holistic program

We run a holistic program for 2-year-old to 6-year-old children, taught in small age-based groups that are always fun, engaging and multi-sensory.  Early learning programs and kindergarten programs are typically play-based and are not designed to give individual attention to your child’s development in numeracy, literacy, and mindfulness. Our tailor-made classes give your child the attention they need to build their confidence for their primary school years.

 

Literacy uses a fun and evidence based program that focuses on the important skills children need to get ready for reading and writing and to excel in their school years.

Children explore numeracy in a hands-on, multi-sensory way, to give them a successful introduction to maths. When they enter school they will have the confidence to excel further in their learning.

A program that equips children with the skills to bring awareness to their whole-self to help them reduce anxiety, deal with their emotions and build emotional resilience.

“Early childhood education is the key to the betterment of society”

Maria Montessori

Well-balanced, fun and multi-sensory

Age-specific weekly group classes

Well-balanced classes delivered in a fun learning environment with 30-minute class for the 2-3 year olds and 75-minute classes for the 4-6 year olds, running 1 class per week following the school terms.

Fun & Multi-sensory

The classes incorporate hands-on multi-sensory methods which are fun and engaging for the children, whilst still being educational and individualised for where each student is at. Our program shows children how to enjoy learning, make new friends, and be ready for the school classroom.

Small and individualised

Each class has no more than 8 children. The teachers are either qualified primary teachers or kindergarten teachers and are extensively trained in the Shining Minds Program and hold a current Working with Children check.

NDIS

We welcome all NDIS participants who are plan or self managed.

What your child gets out of it

Parents and kids both absolutely love our classes, as they are a unique and balanced mix of fun, education, and mindfulness and provide learning opportunities that aren’t necessarily part of kindergarten and ELC curriculums. We are the bridge between kindergarten and school.

All Educators at Shining Minds Early Years are either qualified primary teachers or kindergarten teachers and are extensively trained in the Shining Minds Early Years philosophies and learning themes, and hold a current Working with Children check.
