Our philosophy of enabling learning through play ensures the development of the whole child as an individual. Our teachers create fun and hands-on learning experiences which support each child’s progress towards the early learning goals.

The broad programme is built upon the following areas:

  • Communication and language
  • Physical development
  • Personal, social and emotional development
