Highest International Standards Of Quality

  • Infant Room: 1 adult to 3 children
  • Early Toddlers: 1 adult to 4 children
  • Late Toddlers: 1 adult to 5 children

Safety & Security

Inspire is always striving to provide a happy, safe and secure environment for all children. Our secure keypad entry system on the front door enables parents to gain access by a specific entry code and management is always aware of who is entering and leaving at all times. Apart from parents, only pre-authorized nominees, registered at the nursery with valid identification, are allowed to collect children.

The health and safety of our children is of prime importance. To maintain health and hygiene, we have in place strict guidelines for hand washing & diapering, as well as cleaning and disinfecting. Our premises, toys and furniture are sanitized daily, using non-toxic cleaning agents that do not leave behind hazardous residues.
