We base our work on helping children become successful learners, confident and independent individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors to society. Children will learn through a balance of free and guided play times. The program is adjusted to the needs and abilities of each and every child, and will be provided for them in a safe, caring environment involving continuous coordination with their parents.
