School Reviews

The best certificate I can give to this school is from my daughter who is 3 yrs old, she is loving the school and the teachers. Everyday she gets herself ready for school and with a beautiful smile she will say " Mama let's go to school." She knows her rules very clear and also try to apply some new which she is learning from school, at home she will try to teach me the academics....looking at a number or letter book she will ask me to say the letters and numbers, and when I say it correct she will compliment me by saying...."Good job"...feels so Great!!!! Thankx Precious Gems and Thankx Ms Rumana:)
