Kid Playing with Bubble


We believe the Bible provides the right guidance and principles for bringing up children today, and we strive to incorporate its teachings as a foundation for how we teach and train children.

Toddler Playing


Every child is different and each deserves to be treated as an individual who is deserving of love, care and attention. We ensure that every child receives the dedicated care that they need to thrive and develop.

Our Nursery Rooms 



3months - 2years

The first two years of a child’s life are critical for brain and language development and the early encounters lay the foundation for future intellectual and emotional development.



2years - 3years

This is the age where children will experience dramatic change, as they develop from a dependent baby to a much more independent child and progress along their path to Pre-School.



3years - 5years

As children progress in their development, our aim is to

introduce a structure, pace and a style of teaching to our classes which forms the beginning of their educational journey.
