#1 A world first
Architecturally designed with only young learners in mind, the new Early Learning Village has purpose-built facilities and classrooms with adjoining outdoor spaces tailored to the specific learning needs of different age groups. Plus, there’s six outdoor discovery play spaces shaded to block 75 percent of UV for sun-safe play. Little swimmers can practice their strokes and water skills in the 22m swimming pool with varying step heights catering to different proficiency levels and abilities. And what kid wouldn’t love to show off their handstands and acrobatic moves in the air-conditioned gym, The Hive?
#2 Flexible school day
Flexible weekly and daily options offer parents the opportunity to design the school week to suit a family’s individual needs. Choose from a three-, four- or five-day option for children attending Pre-Nursery to Kindergarten 1 classes, while students in Kindergarten 2 are required to attend all five days in readiness for the more challenging elementary curriculum.
