Summer Soccer club

Play is an integral part of childhood, and we believe in children having a choice of activities. In the morning, students choose from a variety of recreational activities. In the afternoon, they take part in a performing or visual arts course and choose between a number of creative activities, all of which aim to support language learning and expose children to new experiences. 


Diverse. Nurturing. Fun. At CDE, language learning happens through interaction and exploration. Small class sizes allow our dynamic teachers to engage the children through the use of songs, games, and hands-on activities. With a class full of peers from all over the world, it’s bound to be an unforgettable summer!
