They also develop problem solving skills, critical thinking skills by researching and investigating which are all implemented achieved through play.

Educators take cues from each children’s interest, and support them bring their ideas into unique and fun projects and activities that further develop their creativity and support foundational academic skills such as early literacy and numeracy skills.

Through interest based exploration, group projects, science topic inquiries, our preschoolers are nurtured to become confident and independent, to ensure that they are well prepared to make a successful transition to a primary school environment.
