Becoming part of a Family Run Business

Children have always been at the heart of what we do, ever since we opened our first centre in 1974.

Our philosophy and practice is influenced by the Municipal Schools of Reggio Emilia, Rudolf Steiner, Maria Montessori and the International Baccalaureate, as well as our own observations and interactions.

Meaningful Learning Environments

We know that the environment is the third teacher – so our learning environments are all intentionally designed to facilitate children’s sense of agency, stimulate their imagination and creativity, and give them a place to explore, discover, express themselves, learn and grow.
