Dear Parents,

Bilingual Nursery & Preschool Happy Elephant is a special world in which children’s dreams are fulfilled!

Every developmental activity in our center is a magical adventure! Every visit to us becomes unforgettable, and the time spent in our garden is the happiest. Many studies have shown that the first six years of a person’s life are the most important for his intellectual development.

These studies confirmed that the right effect or, conversely, the insufficient impact in the first years of life has a great influence on the behavior and intellectual potential of the child.

For the basis of our task, we took the development of such a potential, with the help of a special educational program. The main goal of our program is the comprehensive development of the individual’s abilities: her intellectual, creative and physical abilities. In turn, bilingualism since early childhood is an effective intellectually developing factor.

In our work we rely on the highest international standards, which is a guarantee of the quality of education. Also among our priorities was the creation of a kind and homely cozy atmosphere, which promotes learning in a game form. Happy Elephant takes children 2 – 7 years.

We create a natural bilingual environment. With teachers native speakers, children learn English, French and Russian. In the older groups, preparations are made for the school.

Welcome to Bilingual Nursery&Preschool Happy Elephant!

I look forward to meeting all of you soon!
