Zest Education offers the Begin Bright® School Readiness Programmes
Begin Bright educational programmes offer the very best start to learning, designed to support 3 to 5 year olds with their transition to school.
Depending on the child’s age and stage, the programmes work through various literacy and numeracy concepts, that are modelled on the objectives outlined in the National Curriculum, in fun and engaging ways.
Begin Bright kids learn to approach learning with a positive growth mindset and a can-do attitude.
Since 2008, Begin Bright has been helping Australia’s littlest learners to become happy, smart and confident. We were proud to become part of the Begin Bright family in 2019 and the first education centre in New Zealand to offer their programmes.
Through the Begin Bright School Readiness Programme children will learn to:
- confidently approach tasks
- demonstrate an understanding of literacy and numeracy foundations
- work in groups
- follow instructions
- develop independence
Enriched Learning Programme
This 3 – 4 years programme provides the learning foundations for children and compliments learning at daycare or kindergarten.
It aligns with the Early Years Framework and Te Whāriki.
The School Readiness programme for 4 – 5 years follows on from this foundation programme, and is designed to support children as they transition to school.
About Begin Bright’s programmes
Begin Bright’s preschool programmes involve play-based activities and hands-on group work, to help develop social and co-operation skills.
The programmes incorporate activities to build fine motor skills, develop pencil grip and hand-eye co-ordination to support the preparation for writing.
Begin Bright is a wonderful way to give your child the best start at school.
