About us
Events
Our events allow like minded kids, teens and their parents to meet up in safe and fun environments for a wide variety of activities.

Be sure to check our Events page for regular updates
We acknowledge the individual, social, emotional and intellectual needs of gifted children and their families throughout the various stages of development from infancy to the teen years and beyond.

Gifted Support Network members have the opportunity to enrich their parenting, teaching and learning journey through information sessions, social opportunities and the sharing of the personal stories of others.

We also work to improve community awareness and understanding of the special needs of the gifted. See Gifted Support Network in the news .

New members are always warmly welcomed.

We now have our own Facebook page where you can find all of our news and events. It is also updated regularly with interesting information and links to all things 'gifted'.  Please take the time to visit and 'LIKE' us.
