From the people that brought you Kung Fu, belly dancing and African drumming lessons (all under one roof), comes a place to learn, grow and have some zany fun; The Center. A large bright central space links the library, dedicated art and science classroom and cooking area. Throw in a healthy dose of Mindful Phoenix's approach to learning and the word "Bushiban" cowers in fear. The school is equipped with multimedia facilities, a rapidly growing library and is decorated so as to get even the most subdued child's eyes roving. Lessons on offer for kids at The Center include English, Science and Nature, Art and World Cultures, while SCUBA diving courses are open to us big kids too. Dive courses are taught by a PADI-certified instructor. For details of these and other upcoming courses and events, drop by The Center.
