GIVE YOUR CHILD A HEAD START IN LEARNING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE (ESL)

One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.

– Frank Smith

ENGLISH ENRICHMENT

We specialise in providing English Enrichment lessons to young learners. Give your children a head start in learning the English language and watch them grow.

ENGAGING ACTIVITIES

Early years in children are a time of curiosity, discovery and learning. They achieve this by engaging in fun educational activities.

REAL BOOK APPROACH

Children can choose a book from our library at the end of every lesson. Through using this real book approach, we aim to promote literacy and the love for reading.

SMALL CLASS SIZE

Our small teacher to child ratio, allows us to truly get to know your child. This allows us to tailor the class to teach them in a way they can learn best.

WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT

Our specialist teachers will warmly welcome every student into their class. They help the students to engage in team-building and friendly activities.

PARENTAL ENGAGEMENT

Our method allows parents to also participate, engaging with their children and spending quality time together.
