It gives me immense pleasure to announce the opening of yet another Children’s Garden in Barsha, where a world of art, creativity, curiosity, innocence, music, vibrant colors and cultures will embrace your children and take them on the most memorable journey of their lives.
|Give me the child until he is seven and I will show you the man|
I therefore urge you to become instrumental in making this short lived season of your children’s life as inspiring for them as ever.
We’re living in an era where creativity is king; the 21st Century needs creative types, and research has shown that multilingual people display a real advantage over monoglots, consistently solving problems faster, communicating more effectively, managing people better and even living longer (!) – all because their brains are constantly active, more ‘alive’.
Here to tap the remarkable potential of children from two years old, TCG is both unique and ahead of its time. This type of multilingual programme is best suited to children who can stay with us for the long term, as it takes a minimum of two years to become stable in their two major languages of instruction. Three years is even better, as after this level of exposure to the dual language programme, children will be fluent.
Happy children will be happy learners, which means we put your children firmly at the heart of everything we do. As individuals, we believe in their uniqueness and value their particular strengths and creative abilities. As a group, their happiness is the driving force behind the warm and lively atmosphere that characterizes our learning environment at TCG.
The children I have worked with in my 20 years as an educator have taught me one very important lesson: childhood should be a journey, not a race. Enrolling your children at The Children's Garden Barsha means sending them on a voyage of discovery - and I would be delighted to meet you to discuss how exciting, absorbing and inspiring they will find it.
