How we do it

Implementing our approach

Child Centered Environment

Our environment, (through the use of displays, equipment, furnishings and a well-planned layout), encourages imagination and curiosity while achieving the right balance between an exciting, secure, and comfortable place to be. All the furnishings are designed specifically for the children, ensuring their comfort.


Interactive Teaching

The teachers listen to and observe a group, so that they know when the children need help and guidance and when they don't. In this way the children can progress at their own pace.

We have several animals in the schools ranging from rabbits to birds. There are several reasons for having the animals in our schools, covering all the areas of our curriculum.

Caring for animals and people other than yourself is an important part of social development.
