The Bright Eyes Trust
Bright Eyes is an early intervention and care center specializing in the foundation phase education of visually impaired children, some of whom are multi-disabled. Bright Eyes Centre for Visually Impaired Children was established in 2009 in response to a need to provide critical early intervention services to blind and partially sighted pre-school children and support to their families.
Most people process information visually. For those with visual impairments, a different approach is required. Our teaching approach, therefore, entails bringing the ‘world’ to the blind child and engaging in more regular one-on-one interaction to expand the child’s knowledge, perceptions and life experiences.
Bright Eyes runs a full pre-school program and aftercare service. We work to ensure that our children are given an equal opportunity to a quality foundation education and that they are well prepared for formal schooling.
We are driven by our passion to make a difference in the lives of visually impaired children by striving to provide the best levels of care, intervention, and educational strategies adapted and suited to their unique needs.
