The Next Innovation Model places an emphasis on place, environment and social interactivity. With a strong foundation in academics, we create a new education experience capable of stimulating all eight of Gardner's Human Intelligences. By reaching students through each of the intelligences, we are able to ignite a child's early learning preference and inspire a life-long love of learning.

Understanding patterns, symbols and numbers.

Picture Creative

Interpreting and understanding colours, shapes and the space.

Body Smart

The skill of learning through action.

Music in Tune

An ear for harmony, rhythm and composition.

Where young minds take flight

Our fresh, new facilities provide a bright, fun, design-driven space for your child to learn. Our Next Prep Academy is specifically created to be a welcoming, stimulating and inspiring environment that supports all eight intelligences. At Next Prep, your child will be engaged in the joy of discovery each day. With exceptional teachers dedicated to a fully immersive learning experience, young minds ages 2.5-5 are nurtured and thrive.

When Tasneem and Navid met, they recognized in each other a shared passion for excellence in education and a deep understanding of the vital role early childhood plays in lifelong opportunities. When they married, they developed their dream for blending their complementary skills to create an exceptional early learning academy that would weave together best practices with an inspiring space and a team committed to nurturing the whole child. Together, they have crafted the vision and focus of Next Prep Academy.
