Saturday Classes

The Saturday Course is for children who wish to experience a full day of preschool life here at Grow International Preschool but do not have a chance to do so during the week. Throughout the day, your child will take-on educational and challenging theme based activities, brush up on their reading and writing skills and eat lunch with new friends!

As this is a full Preschool day, there is much more time to engage your child in activities such as baking/cooking, science adventure walks to the local park and targeted curriculum based projects!
