We ensure our Playgroup classes are safe, nurturing and enjoyable. Children learn through play and inquiry. Music and Movement, Drama and Art are some of the methods we use to teach the children. We encourage the children to express themselves through these mediums. We focus on the student’s social and emotional well being and how to play with with others and be responsible for their own belongings.
Our Nursery 1 programme is designed to develop cognitive, social and emotional skills as well as overall well being.

With our qualified teachers and teacher assistants, you can be assured, learning becomes a fun experience for the young students.
Our Nursery classes adopt an inquiry-based programme which provides opportunities for students to be independent, creative and confident problem solvers.
