School Structure, Themes & Curriculum 

All the classes engage in similar weekly themes to ensure a gradual developmental learning experience from the 2 to 5 year olds. This is also to ensure that the children are taught what is appropriate to their understanding and capability and also to facilitate effective monitoring of each child as well as to enhance the harmony within the school.

The weekly programs are specifically designed for each age group and can be obtained from the office.

Please read through the curriculum we imbue in the weekly program to ensure your child of a well rounded education.
