“We considered a number of schools in the area. What we like about Terra Nova is how learning is made so fun by the teachers as well as the school being in a magical setting. The children are engaged and stimulated and run into their classrooms in the morning. We firmly believe that the children need to be happy first and foremost and this will make them successful in their learning.”
