Welcome to the Academy Nursery School

We aim to provide a bright, stimulating learning environment and, together with parents, help each child to reach his/her maximum potential in every area of his/her growth.

We seek to treat children as individuals, so that each may develop at his/her own pace, in a secure and tolerant setting where staff are sensitive to each child’s particular needs.
