About Us....

Our unique approach, interactive program and specialised educators is what differentiates B4 big school

Since 2017, our one-of-a-kind tutoring centre supports  individual child's learning journey and growth. We support ages 3.5 to 10.5 years depending on the program chosen.

We are proud to be a reliable source of support, compassion, patience and understanding - understanding the different ways in which children/students learn and tailoring for this.

Our goal is to work together with parents and children to offer a successful transition to Kindergarten as well as helping the students through their primary school years not only through their academics but by also supporting their social skills & wellbeing.

It's those positive little things that you tell your dear children that will help them to continue to flourish so please continue to praise every bit of effort!

"Give your child the opportunity to be part of a program which will allow them to flourish and grow!"

The learning support is fostered with the help of our caring and passionate educators at B4 big school.

 

Our team provides the place and space for personal growth, supporting most importantly each child's attention span, learning the basic early foundation skills, which leads to building greater confidence into the your child's most important school year....(Kindergarten - big school can be a sensitive period for your child).

 

Some students still find the first few years of primary school a bit of a struggle so they need a bit of push or some support. We further aim to teach the students to learn and understand how to study and how to stay motivated. We want them to understand that YES, they can eventually complete tasks on their own.

 

At B4 big school, we also acknowledge that sometimes the students have a STRENGTH in one area of learning and a NEED with another area of learning and our attitude towards the students is the following. "This is okay, we can work on this together, and you will get there!"
