Helping gifted kids to thrive
MindPlus PreSchool is a programme for gifted kids aged 2 to 6. Up to 10 children and their parents or caregivers come together with our specialist teacher for a 2 ½ hour session, during the week or on a Saturday morning.

Hear our parents and teachers talk about how PreSchool meets the needs of gifted little ones.
Why is it important to start early?
Gifted children are born with brains super-charged for learning. The early years are a crucial time for all children where rapidly developing brains lay the foundations for ongoing learning. We feed those developing gifted brains with the mix of learning experiences they need, and we support parents to understand their gifted child and how to help them thrive.
What happens at MindPlus PreSchool?
Every session at MindPlus PreSchool is unique, because every group of children is different. There are times during each session to work together as a group, times for children to work alongside each other or together, and times for children to work together with their parents or caregivers.
Our sessions explore weekly themes - like space, the digestive system or emotions - that are guided by student interest and cover a wide range of subjects.
