My Teaching experience  at Little Explorers has been awesome, as I have come to appreciate its educational system that impacts learners holistic development as it encourages learner centered activities such as: Edu Fun, Splash, Math and Science club as well as musical lessons that have been incorporated in its system.

Further Little Explorers has a favourable and conducive learning environment as well as a caring management  system that looks out for its staff and clientele.

Since I love my career and having much passion about the education of young learners, I come to class highly motivated intrinsically and having such a mood boosts my learners as they respond positively to my objectives.
