Hi! We're Zoe + Bec. We are m

ums, teachers and biz besties…

Sprouting Minds is 2 and 3 hour parent-free program, run on the Gold Coast, which guides and supports children in early years education through an open ended and purposeful play approach. Our classes are currently run at Mermaid Beach on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Upper Coomera on Wednesday.

School Readiness

Having both taught in the primary setting, we believe prep has taken a more structured approach to learning and that children can struggle with the pressures of this gigantic leap into formal schooling. In our classes we focus on social skills, language skills, independence, fine motor, self-regulation, concentration, emotional maturity, confidence and resilience. These skills may have major benefits in a successful transition into the Prep year. They are also the key ingredients in allowing our children to learn and grow. We expose our children to pre-literacy and pre-numeracy skills but through immersion and purposeful play experiences. Our little ones have so much fun and they don’t even realise they’re learning.

Spreading the love of learning…

We love sharing our knowledge to other early educators to guide and support little people for the big leap to formal schooling. We offer professional development to early learning centres, providing insightful + innovative approaches to planning and implementing age-appropriate teaching experiences that prepare children for big school.
