Pre-Primary

Our Early Childhood Development Programme (ECD) provides a safe and nurturing learning environment for young learners, while enriching the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of your child.

It comprises of Nursery, Junior K.G and Senior K.G. and is based on the principle that the early years are the most critical for a child’s growth and development.

Additionally, young children learn best in the context of appropriate sensory inputs as well as stable and supportive relationships and interactions. The early years also build the foundations for thinking, language, vision and behavioural attitudes.
