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.
