The classroom environment is set up to allow for individualised and self-explorative learning, which stimulates, fosters, and nurtures the love for learning that will continue throughout life.
Our highly trained teachers observe the children in this environment and introduce them to developmentally challenging activities in practical life skills, sensorial, language, mathematics, cultural studies, and social activities. All of our staff are fully vetted and qualified.

We have daily access to the fantastic sports gym for recreation periods, which allows your child to get plenty of exercise all year round, and our secure outdoor play area ensures they also get plenty of fresh air in a safe and supervised environment.
