Bright Start Specialised Family Day Care offers a safe, nurturing and educational space for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and children with additional support needs. Operating for many years, our centre provides a range of therapies for children and families, and the specialised day care centre is a dedicated Centre for children on the Sunshine Coast that combines day care with intensive one-to-one early intervention therapy.
Our specialised team includes a psychologist; speech pathologist, occupational therapist, board certified behaviour analyst (BCBA), early childhood educators and trained therapy assistants. Passionate about the work they do with children and families, our greatest pleasure is witnessing the difference our unique approach makes to, not only the child, but the whole family.
What does a day at the Bright Start Specialised Family Day Care Centre look like?
Each day includes two dedicated one-on-one therapy sessions with your child plus two therapy focused small groups workshops, and time for playing. Combining the fundamental principles of education and applied therapy with fun, we provide a creative and structured learning environment. In doing so, skill development and behaviour change are broken into small steps, which are easier to learn. Praised and rewarded as your child learns, any challenging behaviour is addressed educationally.
At Bright Start your child can enjoy an inclusive natural and flexible learning environment in a ‘home’ setting.
The specialised Family Day Care Centre is open from 8 am to 6 pm, Monday to Friday.
