Our structure

The kindergarten is divided into two floors with the interior rooms each dedicated to different age groups. Recreational activities offered by the educational programme begin with a focus on play and gradual learning- looking at shapes and colours for example, until stable motor skills are established and clear intellectual interests emerge. Because we offer a special english language lab, theatre school and painting classes, children can learn the value of creativity and develop a passion for learning within a safe, stimulating and joyful environment.
The school also has a welcoming dining room open from Monday to Friday and outdoor spaces with soft floor areas, equipment and games for plenty of outdoor fun.
