Term Time

Children plan their own day according to their interests and potential. They are encouraged to participate in at least one session of active play and one session of quiet play. Special activities will be organized according to parent and children’s preferences, and all children will be encouraged to be involved. Every week we bake, do arts and crafts, have fit kids, challenges and games.

We organize themed activity weeks, for example, Roman week, Sea Week, Olympics Week. Children learn about traditions, customs, history, and food and dress relating to the theme. For example, during Roman week, we learned about how Rome was founded, life in ancient Rome, Gladiators, Roman Food and Art. We made pizzas, painted, played themed games, and created Roman jewellery, swords, shields and art.
