At A1 Kids we aim to provide a home away from home environment 

where children learn to love to learn. We take pride in our respectful, warm and welcoming learning environment which encourages children to learn through free play. These play opportunities help children develop their imagination, creativity and develop to their fullest potential as well as enhances their emotional, physical, intellectual and social skills, in other words, their ‘holistic development’.
