The school seeks to develop students into independent learners by thoughtfully incorporating and integrating play in all preschool lessons.

Students become more actively engaged in their learning and develop essential interpersonal skills as they work together in teams to solve problems and share knowledge.
As they progress higher, students will be exposed to Middle School Curriculum which effectively prepares students for the Cambridge IGCSE Subject Exams Grade 9 and 10, and the Ujian Nasional Grade 9 Exam. As for high school level, design thinking is a process for creative problem solving. Design thinking utilises skills like empathy and experimentation to arrive at innovative solutions.
