Information

Your child’s enrolment will not be secure until we receive the application fee and the first month’s tuition. Enrolment is filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

“ Why is it important for scholars to eat healthily?”, you might ask.
Research has shown that children are able to learn better when they’re well-nourished, and eating healthy meals has
been linked to higher marks, improved memory and alertness, and faster information processing. Therefore
we encourage our parents to partner with us to provide our scholars with healthy food to fuel their learning.
Please see the list at the top of this page for a suggested list of healthy lunches and snacks. The list is not exhaustive, so please check with your scholar’s school if you are unsure of what to pack for daily snack and lunch.
