Message from Mike Finch (Director)

Hi there! Thank you for coming to our homepage! My name is Mike Finch and I am the head teacher / director at Grow. Each day, myself and the staff here work hard to continually lift up and teach our children through fun activities~. We believe that every activity is a chance to enthuse and inspire our children while creating a warm, supportive,caring and safe atmosphere. We welcome each child’s individuality, nurture their self-confidence and develop within them a life-long love of learning. In short, we love GROWing kids and we welcome you to join our family of students 🙂
