Facilities & Staff

Preschool & Kindergarten

In a safe and caring environment with fully committed and qualified teachers fluent in Greek and English languages, children soon begin to develop their social skills taking their first steps in school.

Primary School

The time your child will spend in primary education is exciting, challenging, rewarding and fulfilling. It is, after all, the most important period of your child's life as well as in the life of your family. We want our children to enjoy school, to be happy, to have self-esteem and to develop confidence in themselves and their abilities. We acknowledge children as individuals that have differing strengths and weaknesses. We will support them in achieving their full potential, guiding them to give their best by appreciating what they do well and helping them see how they could do better.

Children's educational results are maximised wherever parents are actively involved in the school and so we strive to forge solid partnerships between children, teachers and parents, enabling them to actively participate together for a positive educational outcome. We work to give children a thorough grounding in basic skills; to develop a lively interest and curiosity about the world in which they live and to develop a love of learning that will stay with them throughout their lives.
