My son and daughter have attended The English Play Group for three years. My kids love their teachers and they get very excited to go to school every morning. They have learned so much, and their vocabulary, reading, writing and social skills are improving remarkably. In addition to the daily fun activities at class, the school holds multiple events throughout the year that involves parents participation, which is a great opportunity to interact with my kids, the other parents and the teachers. It's really great to see my kids having fun with their friends. The teachers and staff are very professional, friendly, cooperative and caring. They are very keen on keeping the parents involved by giving constant feedback and tips in order to improve the kid's progress.
EPG is one of the most successful schools in education where I was inspired with my son in terms of developing his educational and social skills and learning new things daily, helping to build his personality to become a member of society.
The English Playgroup is really a good school for kids. All the staff are amazing and very friendly with the kids. My daughter is in one of EPG branches and she loves all her teachers and friends. She learns new things every day and very excited to go to school each day.
