Personalised care

The personalised attention, respect, and care of each individual, together with clear aims for progression, allows every child to receive the best possible start to their educational journey. We are proud to use the Reggio-Emilia Inspired approach to maximise your child’s development and learning opportunities. This is a powerful, child-centric approach to pedagogy. 

Well-supported transition 

We work closely to guarantee a smooth transition from our crèche to the school and introduce the latest creative innovations in education. We welcome children from a broad international community and specialised educators work with children in small groups to ensure all children experience a warm introduction to St. George’s. We also offer extended childcare options.
