Our Team

At TLC we believe a child needs to be nurtured in a loving and caring environment with personal engagement through their formative years. Our teachers bring a unique blend of dedication and experience which is then actively applied through the Montessori Method of education. Our team brings with it global experience from UK, Australia, India and Singapore. Our teachers bring the gift of knowledge wrapped up in love and care for the children at TLC. They enrich their curiosity, challenge them and encourage them to learn new things, so they can grow to become successful in life. Most of all, our teachers make learning fun. Our low teacher-child ratio of 1:6 for the Adventurers and 1:8 for the Discoverers, Enquirers and Rangers, ensures that your children get undivided attention during their formative years.
