Child Development Centres in Pafos

  • 25.11.2021

Pafos is an amazing city for holidays and a great place to live for all the family. Men can find themselves golfing in Cyprus and endlessly sail their yachts between the island's marinas, while women can discover new Mediterranean gastronomic flavours every day, recreating traditional recipes in their own style. There are plenty of things to do in Pafos for children - boys and girls alike will find plenty to keep them busy at the many learning centres across the city.

Children's Centre for Learning and Development “Maria”

Located near the fire station, this centre offers classes for children from 2 to 16 years old. Teaching takes place in both Greek and English, and most teachers are also fluent in Russian.

  • For children aged 2 to 4 years, this facility offers basic rhythmics, stretching and choreography, classes in logical thinking, basic maths and overall developmental activities which are aimed at teaching children how to socialise, listen to and hear their teacher and carry out basic tasks. Such classes prepare children for the subsequent school education. By the way, the International School of Paphos can become a perfect place to continue the development of each child's individual abilities.
  • The basics of acting are taught to children from 3 to 16 years old.
  • Chess lessons are for children from 4 years old. This fascinating game develops the ability to think and find different ways of solving problems, and teaches tolerance and patience.
  • For children aged 5 and up, there is a more challenging dance programme and serious maths classes.

Apart from children, Maria Development Centre caters for adults and invites them to learn English and Greek, attend fitball fitness classes, or learn a wedding or a graduation dance. The centre has morning and evening groups for adult visitors.
