Nursery

Program overview

School hours per day – 4 hours (Age 3-4 years)

This program is for children between 3 years to 4 years old. Once children graduate from Pre-Nursery, we move on to a more advanced curriculum that escalates the possibilities of learning in your child. The program focuses on better reading skills, a richer vocabulary and stronger skills in basic math. This ensures that your child is ready to venture into a new world of learning that is rich with possibilities.
