  • Description


    We are the first kindergarten in English that seeks to train bilingual children from families who do not speak English, in order to give them better opportunities for their future lives.

    In 2012, Peru came last among the 65 countries that took part in the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), which tested the educational skills of 15-year-olds worldwide. In 2015, another assessment was run and this time Peru performed slightly better: it came out 63rd out of 69 nations. But it remains a serious problem for Peruvian students, as only the students of the Dominican Republic performed worse in Latin America.

    These results are not only a consequence of secondary education, but it also began when they were children when they received early education and this did not help to give them the tools to consolidate their self-esteem and to improve their academic performance.
    At the school, we want to contribute to improving the standards and gives them the best tool any children can have for their future which is a foreign language, specifically English, Why is that? English will not only improve the lives of children providing life opportunities for them but it will raise their self-esteem and parental pride so this will encourage them to improve their life also. and this will be a chain that on the society will be growing and expanding.
    So we don't want to stay just in the city, we have already arranged summer lessons for kids in one Andean community in order to take these benefits to kids that have never had this kind of opportunity before.
    Our unique method for teaching English for pre-readers children makes a revolutionary form to transmit knowledge for these ages (under 7 years old)
    so you are welcome to be part of this ambitious project working with the best and more beautiful ages of kids, playing with them due to our method is playful and interactive. so do not hesitate and join us in this exciting project.
