MindPlus is a programme for gifted 6-13 year olds that provides intellectual, creative, social and emotional learning and support. Children come together, with a specialist teacher, for one day each week. Together they engage in differentiated, strength-based learning experiences to further develop their gifts and talents and a greater understanding of themselves.
Referrals to MindPlus are welcomed from parents or a child’s school. (We welcome referrals from home-schooling parents, too.)
Information regarding a child’s intellectual, creative, and personal abilities and traits is collected from their home and school, and from the child themselves at an entry selection workshop.
This information is analysed to determine whether there is a good match between the child’s strengths and the MindPlus programme.
As with all of our programmes, MindPlus is guided by the New Zealand Centre for Gifted Education Curriculum which focuses on these six learning strands:
The curriculum is developmental in nature and designed to increase, over time, the breadth, depth, sophistication and complexity of learners’ knowledge and abilities in these areas and their self-direction in learning.

MindPlus currently operates out of 12 Units (classrooms) across New Zealand; North Shore, Auckland (x3), Tauranga, Rotorua, Hamilton, Lower Hutt, Wellington (x2), Christchurch and Wakatipu.
The MindPlus curriculum is also delivered in five additional sites (Centres) under alternative local funding models. These five Centres can be contacted directly for information about attendance and related fees.
