Curious minds that we get to nurture every day.

Our friends at The Merit School of Clarendon enjoyed a fun, colorful science experiment and the excitement they showed was simply pure magic! 🧪

Play & Creativity! 🤗🎨

The very best way for children to learn is through play. It’s interesting, it allow them to use their imaginatio, to test & understand things, and connects their experiences to the real world. It’s also a great stress reliever, especially for adults, so the opportunity to just sit and play with our students is something we are extremely thankful for.

We are also thankful for our creative & imaginative little minds. Not only do their masterpieces bring us joy, but it’s such an awesome experience to watch them work hard at something and then feel proud of something all their own. ❤️
