Bright Beginnings Montessori is a family focused centre with caring, fun loving staff.
We are a well resourced and structured environment dedicated to the development and education of our children to give them
the best available start on their educational journey.
Our aim is to provide the ability for our children to reach their full potential and to bring that child to their highest possible intellectual,
moral and cultural level, with a high focus on literacy and numeracy at their own pace, while still having fun. We take the children on
outings throughout the year and have people visit the centre to coincide with the children's interest.
Bright Beginnings is purpose built on a 5000m² site providing space indoors and outdoors for a wide variety of activities.
With a high teacher/child ratio of 1:4 for under two year olds and 1:5 for over two year olds ensuring impressive individual
attention and strong teacher child relationships.
Bright Beginnings Montessori Preschool and Nursery operates from 7.30am to 5.30pm throughout the year except for
a break at Christmas. Enquiries and enrolments are most welcome.

maximum towing speed on the open

Traffic volumes increase signifi-

Drivers will have to share the road

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY stu-
dents celebrated the end of lec-
tures with their annual Garden
Party on Friday.
The party -- held inside the uni-
versity grounds -- doubles for most
students as a final blowout and
chance to relax before end-of-year
A police spokesman said the
students were generally well
behaved, although he believed
there had been thousands of dol-
lars of damage done to the univer-
sity halls of residence before the
event started at 11am. So far no
complaint had been made to police
and the university was dealing
with the incident in-house.
Lincoln University strategic
communications officer Liz
Wright said there had been some
broken windows and minor dam-
age, but she did not believe it was
a major incident.
She said the university was in
the process of identifying the cul-
prits, and some students had
already come forward.
Lincoln University Students
Association president Kent Lloyd
said the event went really well,
and overall the students behav-
iour was good.
Some students went to extra-
ordinary lengths to customise
their costumes, ranging from
giant forks to animals, rugby play-
ers, police officers and
The party, which is famous for
the six before six -- six beers
