I Love Learning Achievement Center (ILLAC) provides enrichment programmes for children aged 2 to 16 years old, stimulating their learning abilities so they learn better and faster. Their programme combines both learning abilities optimisation and curriculum teaching into one.

The Junior Programme is uniquely designed for children aged 5 to 6 to further enhance their learning abilities while mastering the important academic skills required in primary level.
