Small Poppies

“Small poppies has provided our family with an avenue of exploration and discovery to help identify our son’s strength’s, preferences, and natural tendencies in a stimulating and engaging environment. Sue is a brilliant teacher who masters the fine balance of challenging the children while ensuring they are not made to feel out of their depth or overwhelmed. She is adored by our son who now refers to Wednesday’s as “Sue days”! The sessions provide me with the opportunity to be 100% present in my children’s development, without the normal parental distractions. We love these classes.”

MindPlus

“MindPlus gives that little bit of extra challenge, recognising my daughter’s strengths and talents. For us, it is important for Jessie to work with, and learn with others like herself.”

“Sometimes giftedness carries with it extra challenges for a child to fit in to life, and so as parents we need to be on top of the issues and supporting the child to thrive. It can be a bit of a problem-solving exercise. For one of our children in particular MindPlus makes mainstream school easier because she has a day a week with more like-minded children.
