Even though we are a separate entity and not part of the school curriculum; we still hold a strong & communicative relationship with our host schools. This is important to us as, we are caring for their students and families as well.
To offer a safe and nurturing environment that supports social, emotional, intellectual and physical development. We recognize every child's unique ways of learning and adapt our activities to meet each child's specific needs. Most importantly we provide your child with a fun and encouraging setting to build self confidence and a positive self esteem.
