When my child starts Shining Minds what do they need to bring and what do they get?
Why is this program beneficial for my child before they start school?
Our program is beneficial for all children as it teaches your child to be a confident learner. We believe that if your child begins school having the basic skills on Literacy and Numeracy it can make a great difference to how they feel as a learner and how easily they settle into their new school routine and what is expected of them.

What do you do with children who are not comfortable with leaving their parent to attend the Creative Minds Class?
At the start you are welcome to stay with your child, until they feel secure about you leaving. We are trained professionals who will ensure your child is safe and secure, as well as having fun at all times. We will have your contact details, if they prefer you to come back.
What do you do with children who are not comfortable with leaving their parent to attend the Twinkle tots class?
All parents should stay for the Twinkle tots class. If you prefer to just drop your child off as you have a sibling with you, this is absolutely fine too. If your child has a sibling that needs to attend the class with you, they are most welcome to sit quietly in the lesson on their own with some toys. However we cant allow them to join in the class, as it will upset other parents. If they become noisy, you will need to take them out of the class, so as not to distract the other children’s learning.
