At SEED, we are committed to putting a smile on each and every child’s face!

We give children a memorable childhood. Our “SEED” was sown in 2004, to show that quality education makes a difference – especially at a young age.

Our philosophy is to respect each child’s individual developmental needs by optimising their innate potential.

SEED teachers and staff come from diverse educational backgrounds, but they share a love for education, an enthusiasm for teaching and a commitment to providing the best possible educational experience for your child.

Our Quality Excellence Team and Training Team ensure that all staff including support staff are trained both theoretically and hands-on before they are in the class with children. There is a minimum of 25 hours of training per term teachers with a three hour refresher course every month. SOPs and quality excellence audits enable us to take our centers far beyond excellence.
