The curriculum, daily schedules, and classroom environments have been structured for each age group. We emphasize on active learning, language development,and creative play under the care of passionate educators. We are open to comments and suggestions that will assist us with enhancing our school, believing that positive change is beneficial to everyone associated with our program.
