50 Years of Love & Care

2018 marks our 50th year of existence, it is a celebration of our school and our families pride.

The school is our family pride:

After 50 years in the same family the school is naturally well established and well equipped.

The 4th generation owner, Crystal, is now 27 years of age and very eager to take up her place one day. She has completed her degree and works at the school on a full time basis.
