Give your child a gift that lasts forever...a second language!

Why choose a multi-language preschool?

In a world "gone global", enrolling your son or daughter in an international preschool is a smart choice. A young child's brain is wired to pick up language naturally, so the perfect time to introduce your child to a foreign language is as they learn their first one. Plus, being bilingual builds brain-power!

Parents are realizing how important it is to raise kids as global citizens. Read about what Kigala parent experiences on our Testimonial page.
