What People Say

I was recommended to choose Teddy Academy as a primary school for my son. I visited school, talked to teachers and pupils and found so many opportunities here, that I had no doubts what decision to take. My son is now in elementary schools, but he still remembers Teddy Academy.

Emma Doe

I must admit, I loved teaching staff from our first meeting. I saw they are intelligent, open-hearted and educated. All my children attended Teddy Academy and had a very strong base for further education. I can strongly recommend this school to all parents who are looking for it now.

Tom Ford

I want to thank all teachers who do their best to provide our children with qualitative and useful knowledge. They perfectly mix education and play, and children are very satisfied with such approach to lessons. My daughter is a graduate and she is ready to study in elementary school.
