WORLD OF WINGS

Members at Wow believe that early childhood learning is the foundation and an essential factor in becoming a nurturing and creative individual. What and how they learn should not be restricted only to a classroom and textbooks, but rather they should constantly be exposed to new knowledge while they engage in fun plays and other activities throughout the day.  Visit our specially designed butterfly atrium and animal exhibits. WOW members hope to provide each child with a unique one-of-a-kind experience that will enable him or her to envision a higher standard of learning and living for the future.
