Our Playgroup II

Children from four years of age can attend either our Playgroup II classes or our Kindergarten 1. Together with the Playgroup I, between 12 and 18 children are led by two English-speaking teachers in the mixed-aged classes. 

At Playgroup, we believe in supporting their sense of wonder and natural curiosity in the world around them, adopting a play-based approach with focused topics that involves both child-initiated and teacher-supported learning. Children’s learning and inquiry are facilitated through active engagement and the interaction between the child and her peers or her environment, developing their cognitive skills, imagination and most importantly, social emotional competence.

Our programme offers creative arts, music and movement, outdoor play (playground and sand play), sports and professional swimming lessons by AquaDucks.
