We at Al Shams Centre believe that all students can reach their academic, behavioural and social potential by providing education and therapeutic support based on principles of recent research on learning. These principles include that the learning environment encourage the students to become active learners by building on the students’ natural desire to explore, understand and master new skills and events. By being active learners, the students are able to internalize new meaningful knowledge that they can transfer to situations outside the school, empowered to use every opportunity to practice and problem-solve, cooperating socially and assuming responsibility for one’s learning.

We strive to provide exciting and challenging experiences within a positive, supportive environment, fostering respect for oneself and for all other people.

“Play is the highest form of research.”
