For our pre-schoolers – Pre-nursery, Nursery and Kindergarten – we aim at promoting psychological and physical development of each child by providing a suitable educational environment. This includes various educational activities centered on play. Our classrooms and activities are designed in such a manner that they put a child at ease and stimulate learning. For us, it is imperative that the school be a place where a child is happy.
