Mission

It is the mission of VICM to bring children and families together in an interactive educational space where dynamic play inspires a love of learning. The VICM aims to create an environment that fosters explorative learning and a life long passion for seeking knowledge. At the VICM, we believe that nothing in the life of a child has more impact than the ability to acquire knowledge. When a child learns something new it becomes a part of them in a way that defines their future, building confidence and self esteem through the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills. The children of these islands, and indeed all the world's children, deserve to be educated. It is the single most important metric of the health of a society, how we treat our children.
