Rainbows, foam paint, clag and colourful sand - all in a days work for Bridie and her team at Begin Bright. Mamma and bubs got right into it with the Pink Program which runs on Tuesday mornings for 2 to 3 year olds. It is an introductory class that is partly structured. Starting with a story to introduce the theme of the day - rainbows of course - the children are guided through a number of activities of which they can choose to spend as little or as much time as they wish. Stations are designed for the tiny guests today, engaging their sensory skills, fine motor control but also good, old fashioned fun. We spent plenty of time in and around the multicoloured sand, making patterns with the coloured shaving foam paint and dropping pop-poms in the tube. Parents are encouraged to participate fully in the sessions as well - Mamma certainly learnt quickly that foam and a camera don’t mix too well. Sessions run for 45 minutes and what is best - once the mess is made, the lovely ladies take care of pack up!
Mamma’s special mentions: Begin Bright run a number of different programs for school readiness and primary tutoring, as well as school holiday programs.
