Description: EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS:


Infants: 6 weeks – 15 months
Our specially designed nursery is a perfect place for all your baby’s needs including physical, social, and emotional. Our excellent teachers are dedicated to support the development of your little ones exploration of senses; Visual, Touch, Auditory. They also make sure that your baby gets a lot of TLC through being held, fed, and interacted with on a constant basis.

Toddlers: 15 months – 24 months 
To encourage a child’s natural curiosity of the surrounding world, our active and imaginative teachers plan exciting lessons for your little ones. During these lessons, children have the chance to participate in problem solving/cause and effect activities that reveal patterns and sequences. During these lessons, children stretch their imagination through creative play to support symbolic thinking, language development, and social interaction.

Preschool: 2 -5 years 
To encourage curiosity and build self-confidence in your preschooler, our teachers create lessons that incorporate art, science exploration, math, creative play, and more. Teachers also read children's books that explore and nurture key social and emotional skills, engage in activities that require cooperation and self-awareness, and encourage communication with peers. Children are encouraged to both participate in independent and group learning activities to promote the important personal and social skills they will need for a successful transition into school.

After School: 5-12 years
This program is designed to help your young children succeed in school. After a long day at school, we warmly greet and welcome students for a fun and educational experience. Our after school tutors focus on each child’s needs and come up with engaging activities to help with homework and to broaden subject knowledge in topics such as math, reading, writing, science, etc. In addition, children are provided a healthy warm meal.
