Our Rooms

spacious Rooms designed to capture the breezes

We are air-conditioned for very hot days and heated during the winter months.  Each room, is designed and equipped to appropriately meet the needs of children. In keeping with the home like environment, photos, displays and art work are usually housed in frames avoiding the cluttered classroom look. There is a focus on aesthetics reflecting our respect for children and their right to beautiful things that lift their spirit.
