Our values

Care

Care with love. We care for each individual in our community. We maintain the children’s well being as our highest priority and make decisions according to the children’s needs. With care we pursue a safe environment for our children and educators. We educate children to care for themselves, for others and for the environment around them, from school to home to our whole planet.

Learning

Guide children to be self motivated and confident learners. We advocate for every individual in our community,including children, parents, family members and educators to be life-long learners. We cultivate curiosity, learn from adversities, and provide learning and growth opportunities in our community.

Trust

We choose to trust and believe in others. We highly value the trust the community grants us and take it into strong consideration in our communication and decision making process. We educate our children to trust and know they will be trusted. We help our teachers and students to be their best and give them space to safely experiment and grow.

Innovation

We cultivate innovation spirit in children to prepare them for their future in an everchanging world. Based on the needs of children development, we progress with time and always strive to be innovative educators.
