All children will get to learn naturally through play, while Kindergarten 1 students have the privilege of experiencing 'Learning Time with Timmy', our innovative play-based methodology features animated characters from Academy Award®-winning Aardman stories. With our specially-trained teachers, all students will feel safe and relaxed as they embark on a hands-on exploration to develop their speaking and socialisation skills. We will also nurture their love for learning as they become confident English readers.
