Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Children learn through play. They learnt best when they feel safe and secure physically and emotionally, and work on things that interest them. Children who make most of the progress are those who take initiative in problem-solving. It is our job to help children to establish a positive connection with nature. They need to experience the real world (not via technology) and start to learn about the role of a good citizen from a young age.
