Our Values



We believe in the importance of play and recreation for healthy, holistic development of the mind, body and spirit. Social, emotional, and life skills strengthened through meaningful and enjoyable experiences can help you become a resilient, creative, curious and driven individual.


We believe fun and laughter are catalysts to an open mind and an open heart.

Connections: Ubuntu

We believe that a better future for all of us lies in our ability to understand each other and respect each other, to see the similarities, appreciate the differences, and have the confidence to grow together.


We believe that curiosity, inspiration and dreams for the future come from exposure to novel ideas, experiences and shared moments.


By feeding the mind and exposing what exists and what's possible, we can ignite a spark. Confident curiosity and creativity can unveil a child's uniqueness and signal to those around them how to nurture their potential!


Generosity of spirit 

We believe that everyone can, and wants to, make a contribution to bettering this world.


We aim to break down barriers and create opportunities to experience the joy and personal value of giving and connecting with new people in new ways.
