A fun and effective English curriculum for your child designed by British Council early years experts

Our innovative play-based methodology features animated characters from Academy Award®-winning Aardman. Your child will learn naturally through play and Timmy’s stories. When your child is with our specially-trained teachers they will feel safe and relaxed, as if they were at home. 


An effective learning experience needs to tap into your child's natural curiosity. It needs to be holistic and inspired by play to keep up with your child's cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional and physical development.

Your child will enjoy learning English through stories, videos, songs, movement, drama, arts and crafts and much more. Our teachers set up purposeful play activities that provide opportunities for your child to encounter and learn new language.

You will see your child make real progress in their English language learning, building their self-confidence and having fun along the way.
