Begin Bright Preschooler and Early Primary aged programs

The Begin Bright Preschooler and Early Primary aged programs focus on supporting our youngest learners in the early stages of development and school life. Our programs assist children in building confidence and creating a love of learning, so children can flourish when they start school.

Our new Enriched Learning programs align with the Early Years Learning Framework giving young children a balanced introduction to learning as well as early exposure to maths, literacy, and social skills by engaging with well-known children’s books.

Begin Bright also have our well-known Maths and Literacy programs which are designed to give focused attention to the development of these essential skills. This program is ideal for learners who are more confident with their learning and wish to progress their mathematics and literacy fundamentals.

Pink Level (2-3 year olds)

The 2 year old Begin Bright program is designed to play with purpose. While each lesson revolves around craft, songs exploring and playing, there is a main focus to introduce children to age appropriate concepts. This will give them a solid foundation for learning when they progress through the later levels of Begin Bright and go to school. This program not only concentrates on the traditional learning of colours, shapes and numbers, but also looks at understanding of concepts such as positioning of items, people in our communities and how their body works. This is incorporating academic principles with life skills.
