Kaleidoscope offers classes, camps, play therapy, and runs the Creative Minds programme, which provides curriculum enrichment to public preschool and primary schools. Located in the historic “Old Elliot” in Devonshire on the corner of Jubilee and Parsons road, Kaleidoscope continues the tradition of offering a solid education for children of all ages but with an unexpected twist. Our signature inquiry-based model of learning combines messy play, outdoor exploration, and fine art techniques and gives children the freedom to question and create. At Kaleidoscope, children enhance their problem-solving skills, critical thinking, fine and gross motor development, nurture their imagination, and learn practical life lessons necessary to become whole, self-sustaining human beings.
