Well-equipped classrooms, playgrounds, and children's gardens create an environment designed to ignite imagination and enrich young lives.
Our educational program is one of "joyful scholarship" in which children acquire skills through experiences with beautiful materials and meaningful, compelling lessons on topics designed to help them see the larger picture of our world community.
