Growing Smart

The ultimate brain booster for your child

Ever played the Bongo? Or made your own musical instruments?

Our enrichment programmes engage young children at different stages of their development to explore language, maths, science, art, social and problem-solving skills through exciting hands-on experiments and activities, stories and rhymes, puppetry and music.

As the first and only preschool in the world that successfully teaches play-based phonics to children from as young as 6 months old, we lay the crucial foundation to literacy skills and early reading. Since 2002, our methods have enabled students to read phonetically (and not by rote) by the age of 18 – 30 months.
