We believe in the power of continuous assessment and feedback to support a child’s learning journey. Educators closely observe and document each child’s progress, providing personalized support and guidance.

Outdoor learning sessions are crafted to foster a deep connection with the environment. These experiences instill a sense of wonder and respect for nature in children, encouraging them to become environmentally conscious individuals.

Our outdoor curriculum includes hands-on activities like gardening, nature walks, and exploration of the natural world. These activities provide practical learning experiences that enrich the children’s understanding of scientific and environmental concepts.
