Our
Philosophy

We embrace a child-centric approach which emphasises that the needs of the child must always come first.

Our
Mission

We strive to nurture and develop each child’s potential and abilities through individualised learning programmes.


Our Premier Facilities

Our flagship Academy spans over 10,500 sq ft of space specifically designed for children. We offer learning, therapy and play - providing a balanced approach for each child to learn in fun and conducive environment. Our premium facilities include spacious classrooms, an impressive 2,000 sq ft Occupational Therapy Gym, therapy rooms, a Snoezelen sensory room and dedicated areas for arts & craft, music, dining and changing room/toilets.

As part of our engagement with the special needs community, we sponsor space for the Autism Cafe Project (ACP) at our Lounge area where families can come and enjoy the food and drinks served by special needs youth.
