“Free the child's potential, and you will transform him into the world.” – Maria Montessori

Nurturing Environment

Our goal at Magic Years is to create a nurturing and challenging environment where children can build trust and gain confidence in their abilities. Such an environment is crucial for the child’s cognitive, social, spiritual and physical development.

As a small school specializing in the early years, we have the ability to constantly refine our practices and adjust our environments to ensure our children are in the best position to succeed. This is what has defined Magic Years over the years and has continued to be our hallmark. 

The Whole Child

At Magic Years we are guided by the philosophy that “each child is like a mine rich in gems of inestimable value and that education can alone cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit from it.”

We realize that our students have immense intellectual, emotional, social, physical, moral and spiritual capacities. Our goal is to use our educational philosophy and curriculum to reveal each child’s inner potentialities. This is achieved not only by providing the knowledge and skills to meet the needs and requirements of our age, but also by inculcating in our children high ideals and moral standards.

Purposeful Action

Our approach to learning reinforces capabilities that will enable the children to make appropriate choices and take purposeful action to benefit themselves and their society. Such action inspires the children to become problem-solvers and contributing world citizens in their own small, but meaningful ways.
