My daughter has started to speak English confidently after two months of joining CESK and her big brother has done that even earlier. So, I have to speed up my English learning. FYI, we’re from Indonesia and we’re very delighted with CESK

Both of my children spent time at CESK before moving on to Infant School and I couldn’t have asked for a better place for them to be. The staff at CESK provided a caring, safe and stimulating environment for my children to develop in- not only do my girls have a fun time, they have a fun time learning! CESK offered my children a great start to school life and I have recommended it to many other happy parents over the years.
Honor absolutely loved going to CESK. Every morning I dropped her off she would be smiling and calling out her teachers’ names! The care the staff offered was fantastic and certainly showed in the children’s happiness. Honor always came home with very colourful paintings, drawings or some craft that they had done that day. A great place to send your child a very happy and friendly atmosphere.
I am proud to say that I have known this school for almost 16 years and it has always been known as a good school here in Doha. All my children attended CESK and have always been pleased. The owner of the school has always been attentive as to meet the parents’ needs. The staff have always been great and the children happy. I will always recommend the school - it’s a great school. I have been pleased all these years.
