Campus 1 – Nursery School Phase

Find us on Lionsear Crescent off Village road in Farrarmere.

We are especially focused on catering for the specific needs of 2 – 4 year old little ones.

Our curriculum follows the same themes as those presented at the Preschool phase in a fun and interactive way. Children are taught interesting and informative topics without forgetting the need to play. We have plenty of space to run and explore in a safe and carefree environment.

Our teachers are of the highest standard and are all kept up to date with first aid training.
