    We believe that young children flourish in environments where play, experimentation and positive interactions are at the core of their everyday experiences; and have the capacity to persevere with great concentration on challenges that truly engage them and light the fire of their curiosity.




    ELC Summer Camps will run for 5 weeks from July 9-August 8, 2019
