SFL Method:

“SFL” stands for Safe, Fun and Learn! The most important rule in every class is safety. All our activities are conducted with a “safety first” mentality.

Next, classes have to be fun! We learned a long time ago that when students are enjoying themselves, they learn faster and more! If it is not fun, kids will simply not want to attend class. Lastly, the students need to learn and improve skills in every class.

We use “YES, I CAN!” attitude in everything we do and it teaches students they can achieve anything they set their mind to.
