MEET THE Team

The team at Beautiful Minds treats each other like family, mostly because we’ve spent years researching and developing projects together.

We have a whole range of different backgrounds and talents. It’s not what you’d expect from an industry-leading team of educators, but that’s the beauty of it. 

We work around the clock to help kids realise their potential, and make customers and friends feel like family too.
