In order to focus on all areas of a child's growth and help children to achieve their full potential, we follow a structured program. All activities & monthly themes vary by age groups.
Parents may choose between half day and full day. The 2d/3d drop-off options are perfect for kids younger than 2.5 yrs who are just starting drop-off. As they gradually get used to drop-off and grow older, we strongly recommend all five days either half day or full day so their transition to a bigger school is seamless.
8:30am – 8:40 am – Drop-off for kids staying full day
8:40am - 9:00am – Breakfast (encourages children to eat and enjoy in social setting among friends)*
