Our curriculum is designed to meet the needs of children from different backgrounds and nationalities. Our aim is to make learning fun, whilst our child-centred approach ensures that each child is treated as an individual promoting the development of its emotional, intellectual and social needs.
Our goals include the encouragement of each child’s natural curiosity, active thinking, interest and positive attitude for learning.
Emphasis is on learning in an environment of achievement and success planned to encourage confidence, discovery, independence and social interaction.
We also organise play centers in the rooms where children can choose their own activities and also to learn threw their own experiences.
