Begin Bright Harrington Park Testimonials
I was referred to Begin Bright by a friend in a similar situation.We could not be happier. My children love attending each lesson. I think for my children small things like the layout of their classes and the bright colours make a difference, it is easy for them to feel comfortable.For myself it’s the delightful teachers who engage the children and give them a positive environment to learn. The children’s teacher has always given me feedback on their progress, which I find useful.
I have noticed my children have more confidence in their learning and they have improved with their schoolwork dramatically.I have in the past and will continue to recommend Begin Bright Harrington Park.Susan
He was a winner even before the exam had started. Our daughter has also been attending Begin Bright Harrington Park for the past 6 weeks. Within that time she has increased her reading by two levels and she received 90% in her spelling test. I am most impressed that Begin Bright HP are able to teach both of our children in a style that suits their extremely different learning styles.
Both of the children are genuinely happy to grab their bags to go each week. I seriously recommend Begin Bright for anyone who may need a new approach to supporting children with their school work.Mrs Happy Anonymous
Charlotte has gained much more confidence in herself and also her concentration has improved significantly. She loves attending Begin Bright every week and has greatly improved her writing skills and letter identification. She takes great pride in her work and Begin Bright gives her a great opportunity to learn whilst also doing arts and crafts.
The Begin Bright centre at Harrington Park is a warm and friendly learning environment. It draws my daughter in from the minute she gets there and she is very comfortable to be there by herself. Kylie is a fantastic teacher and my daughter adores her. She gives each child individual attention and has great control over the class. Her patience is amazing!
I have recommended Begin Bright to a number of friends and will be enrolling my other daughter in as soon as she turns 3. I feel it teaches children in a relaxed way and I feel it takes pressure off parents to have to do it all.”Susan (mum of Charlotte - School Readiness)
Isabelle’s social skills are improving and her understanding and recognition of numbers and letters have improved dramatically.
The teachers care and understand each child and provide a diverse learning environment to cater for each child’s individual needs. The teachers are also highly qualified so you feel that your child is receiving the ‘best’ possible help. I have recommended Begin Bright Harrington Park to others. The results are amazing.
Kylie the owner, is able to assist with any concerns and is happy to discuss your child’s development at any time. She goes above and beyond to help out.”Simone (mum of Isabelle – School Readiness)
Apart from learning so much (ie sounds, spelling, vowels, maths) Fraser has developed his ability to pay attention, listen and follow instructions and to stay on task. Fraser has a great time in class and always looks forward to Thursdays.
I found the program so beneficial for my son Fraser (Yellow) that I have started my daughter Lily (Green). Begin Bright is also a great place to identify any particular area your child might need extra attention in.
Kylie is very knowledgeable when it comes to child development and school readiness. Kylie is always an excellent source of advice. The program is great and very easy for parents to compliment at home. The homework is great practice and much enjoyed by both of my children that attend.
I would most definitely recommend Begin Bright Harrington Park as Fraser and Lily have both thrived from their lessons. As a parent I feel that I have provided my children with the best start to their learning career.”Jasmine (mum of Fraser and Lily - School Readiness)

From attending School Readiness classes, I have seen a 100% improvement in focus and pencil grip.
For a child that has been through so much, it has helped in every way possible!
I like the small class size, the quality of the staff and the location!
I would recommend this service to others.

I did a Google search and found Begin Bright Harrington Park.
From attending School Readiness classes, I have seen Savanna’s confidence in learning grow. She is not afraid to ask questions. She can hold a pencil and write her name. She can recognise letters and numbers and is learning patience to wait her turn in class.
Miss Kylie is wonderful with her students. You can see each week all the kids developing a positive, learning relationship together.
I always recommend this service to my friends.
Every day Savanna asks if she can go to class with Miss Kylie.
This is such a great thing for kids to get ready for school; learning social, emotional and academic skills to arm them with knowledge so they’re not shocked when they reach Kindy.”Kylie (mum of Savanna – School Readiness)
The staff at Begin Bright Harrington Park are friendly, kind and caring. They make time to talk to you if you need to. They made my daughter and I feel very welcome since our first arrival.
I would highly recommend Begin Bright Harrington Park to parents whose children may need extra help with maths, reading etc. My daughter’s teacher has made a huge difference in my daughter’s life and for that I am extremely grateful.
Begin Bright Harrington Park is an amazing place.”Tracy (mum of Isabella – Tutoring)
The location of the centre within Harrington Park Plaza is great and we love the bright colours and layout of Kylie’s rainbow school.
I have recommended this service to two other people and since I have spoken about it, they have also enrolled their children in with Kylie’s Begin Bright centre.
We love all of the friendly staff at the centre and love the feedback we receive so that we as parents can help our children continue to develop skills.”Sam (mum of Emily – School Readiness)
After attending School Readiness classes, my son can recognise and write all the letters of the alphabet. He also knows how to write numbers and recognise them.
Begin Bright Harrington Park is a friendly and warm classroom setting and the kids love going to class to learn and to see Kylie.
I definitely recommend this centre to everyone. I find that it is an excellent way to prepare your child for children for starting school with the classroom setting.
I think Kylie O’Loughlin is an amazing teacher. She is friendly and caring and easy to talk to about your children and any issues that arise.”Tanya (mum of Toby – School Readiness)
We have seen major developments in our son’s reading, writing, counting and social skills. His preparation for school activities has been enhanced extremely and we are confident now that he will be successful.
We specifically like the content and structure of the lessons (seated, listening, participating). The delivery of the lessons is a point we are particularly impressed with. This is due to Kylie’s teaching style, enthusiasm and personal care and interest in each individual student.
We would definitely recommend Begin Bright Harrington Park to others because it is a safe and effective place to prepare your child for school. Kylie has been a great help with assisting our son in other areas of his development through her occupational knowledge as well as her general parenting experience.
The Begin Bright Harrington Park centre is a success due entirely to Kylie’s presence and efforts.”Mick & Patti (parents of Frank – Yellow Level School Readiness)
From attending classes, their confidence has soared and their understanding of basics has improved dramatically.
We like that class numbers are kept to three in the groups sessions so the children can benefit more.
I would recommend Begin Bright Harrington Park as I can see the difference in my children and I can see their growth so far.
Keep up the excellent work you are already doing with my children. They look forward to coming every week.”Leanne (mum of Danielle & Chloe – Tutoring)
