The interaction of your child's caregivers with your child is important:
Our employees are not only the primary caregivers of your child, but also they are always readily available as a mentor to your child.
Speech, reasoning and actions are linked to each other:
Speech ist the foundation of our reasoning and our actions. Therefore language promotion plays a an important role in the Little Giants curriculum. Our teachers read books, cite poems and above all explain things to your child.
Children learn through play:
Playing is an important form of learning. While playing children explore, train social behavior and develop important skills.
