Small Classes

We have smaller classes and higher staff-child ratios which are better for young children, allowing more individual attention and reducing the number of stressful interactions.


Infant Care

We provide a safe and nurturing “home away from home” with early education programmes designed to help your infant grow and learn, improving his/her cognitive development, creative expression as well as social and emotional development.


Our Aim

Is to help your little ones develop to his/her fullest potential through individual attention in small classes. It provides a stable foundation for all the years to come.
