Empowering unique young minds with new forms of learning.

We all know that difficulties with learning development can be a worrying time for both parents and teachers alike.


That is why we offer a specialised focus on early cognitive education and development through a dynamic, interactive approach to assessment and learning enrichment programs.


Each assessment and learning program is a powerful experience of change that helps to maximise young children’s learning potential, thinking skills, and understanding.

We compliment this with working with early learning educators to develop skills and strategies to foster and enrich early childhood learning.

For parents

At MindCHANGE, assessment and learning programs help you to understand how your child thinks and how to support how they learn and develop. Parents receive tangible strategies tailored to their child’s learning needs and potential.

For educators

Professional development workshops equip you with further tools and understanding of how to assess and develop new cognitive skills, thinking and learning in young children.
