Vision

Bodhi is a new generation school empowering young minds to achieve excellence through a foundation of conceptual learning.

Mission

Our mission is to prepare children to become self-reliant, strong individuals; to teach them to grow intellectually with social and emotional maturity. It is during these first few years that potential vocabulary, math and logic skills are largely determined and emotional stability is greatly affected. By providing the child with all the nutrients during their peak growth, we help to ensure the self-confidence and prosperity of their future.

 

Bodhi’s team or “Pillar of Strength” as we like to call is the love and passion of our Teachers and Helpers.

Our teachers are our biggest asset to our children who love and adore them immensely! The cheerful, energetic and enthusiastic teachers strive to give the best environment to the children by being a guide, friend and preacher.
