About Us

Our Objective

Dr Montessori observed that children are inherently good and if allowed to develop freely they are naturally caring to each other and connected to the world around them. According to her observations children have precise inner guides and the work of adults is to support them and create an environment in the day care facility, which will give them the opportunity to express their skills. The children’s early learning and spiritual nature, if supported correctly, can show adults the way to return to a more meaningful, holistic way of living.

Our Objective is to provide children a happy and safe environment which will promote their natural growth, in line with their intrinsic sensitive periods of development. Our vision is to see our children becoming happy, confident and intelligent human beings..
