- In their formative years, your child will take their first steps, make their first relations and begin to develop skills that will form the foundation of their future.
- Every day, experienced teachers present your child with a range of indoor and garden activities designed according to their age and progress made in our centres to engage and promote their development and independence. Our rich curriculum delivered by them supports the children warmly and sensitively to grow up as confident, inquisitive individuals who love learning.
- We value and promote play as a meaningful method of learning. Every day is different! Throughout the day, the children will be engrossed in a variety of activities, both adult-led and child-initiated using both the indoors and our outdoor play areas as their learning environment.
