In our work, we put great focus on one thing - the welfare and education of your child. In order to properly encourage your child's personal and academic development, our professional educators follow a unique pedagogic approach that combines academic excellence with a free-spirited and playful atmosphere for learning.
Our teachers regularly participate in educational seminars and always bring new ideas and input to their daily tasks. These ideas are passed on to your child in playful exercises and diligent study sessions
All of our staff are Level II background screened and all must come with clean phycical or a negative TB test. We strive to have the best staff possible that want to continue learning and teaching new things, new ways to the children in our care.
