Forward Thinking Education
A good start from preschool sets the tone for the rest of a child’s schooling career.
50% of a child’s intellect is developed in the first 3 years of life, a further 25% in the following 3 years. EcoKids is a one-of-a-kind nursery school, in a unique setting where children are supplied with the best tools for play and exploration while discovering themselves and the world they live in. We adopt the Reggio Emilia-inspired approach which helps children ‘work hard at play’. Learning all the necessary academic concepts while never losing sight of the development of the “whole child”.
Our cutting-edge curriculum will ensure your child receives the best start to their education available.
We instill an awareness of our environment and an appreciation and understanding of nature.

Custom Built Campus
Our school was designed and built with pre-schoolers in mind. Every aspect geared to engage the children and be an active element in their learning. At EcoKids we believe that a beautiful environment brings out the best in a child. Stimulating all the senses through well laid out, engaging spaces. We provide a dynamic blend of serene colours, natural materials, relaxing sounds and calming scents that combine to create an environment to maximize learning and play.
Safe & Secure
Security cameras cover the entire school inside and out to monitor all interactions throughout the day. We have panic buttons and armed response. Our teachers are first aid certified and are qualified in paediatric CPR. We are highly vigilant about who is collecting your child and make sure that your child’s safety and wellbeing is always top of the list.
Equipped for Learning
EcoKids is geared for pre-schoolers, what a child needs is a safe space to explore and adventure whilst they engage in and make sense of the world around them. Our caring educators guide their play and discovery. Our curriculum is always evolving – it is an opportunity for playful, inquiry-based learning where children and teachers seek, find, wonder and play with all possibilities. We incorporate all aspects of “the languages” of children into fully discovering their world.
Nature On Our Doorstep
EcoKids is located on Bullfrog Pan, a thriving natural wetland that offers tranquil views and promotes a serene atmosphere. Children deserve to engage with nature and experience the magic and wonder of an outdoor environment like the EcoKids Playground. Everyday brings a new discovery and the children are filled with a sense of wonder and appreciation for nature.
Our Pre-School. Our Family. Our Community. Our Mission.
We strive to provide the best, early care and learning, in an environmentally friendly and tranquil setting, where children are nurtured into becoming their individual best intellectually, mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Encouraged by our qualified teachers and loving facilitators our students learn life skills and grow through a combination of free play and guided activities.
Our students engage in exciting activities such as planting vegetables, learning to recycle and re-use, nature walks, wildlife class, water, and energy conservation and much more…. We want our EcoKids to grow up to be conscientious adults because for now their lives are in our hands, but our future is in theirs.
Places like the site of our nursery school only remain as beautiful as they are because of people who have grown up with an understanding of how precious our natural resources are.
Each child is monitored, and their progress carefully noted, they are given the space and freedom to grow and develop in a positive, encouraging environment and they are given all the support and guidance they need. We encourage parent involvement and provide many avenues for parents to become involved in their child’s schooling experience. We understand the strong bond that a young child forms with their teacher. During these impressionable years, every moment is a learning experience, and the teacher is there to nurture and assist them on this exciting journey.
Safety & Covid Protocol
EcoKids always puts safety first whilst providing the perfect setting for a child to enjoy the experience of school. We have qualified CPR and First Aid trained teachers and our children are always closely monitored throughout the day. Classrooms and playground spaces are covered by CCTV cameras, offering our parents and teachers additional peace of mind.
All Covid-19 protocols are followed as laid out by the Department of Social Development however our school is treated as a safe-zone for children. Once screening has been done in the mornings, preschool children are not required to wear masks during the day. All adults wear masks and follow strict protocol.
What Our Parents are Saying
From Our Principal
As a parent, it is so important to me that my children learn and grow in an environment that moulds them in every aspect to be the best version of themselves but also a considerate and organised member of society. Nature has beauty and wisdom and I want to help children appreciate, learn, step back and consider the earth and its ecosystem. It is not an easy road, but it is so important for us to raise a generation that understands the importance of sustaining the world we live in. My goal is to continue to shape the curriculum and learning outcomes of EcoKids Preschool, EcoKids Primary and EcoCampus to help raise a generation of children who will be ready to make the difference this world desperately needs.
