Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

General Approach to Learning: Teacher-Led

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Children who need extra help get more one on one time with a teacher during reading group time and learning game time. If children are excelling above the rest of the students they also will get more activities suitable for them during reading group/ learning game time. This is the time of the day when the students are put in groups with other students at their level to keep them progressing at their own level.
