Building Commenced May 2013 and Completion date is scheduled for September 2013
The building of the EcoKids school features a new trend in construction and in childcare. Where innovative thinking, aesthetic appreciation, imagination and curiosity are challenged, nurtured, and valued. Where an environmentally-friendly build compliments a natural, healthy setting. Our school is located in an environmentally sensitive wetland area with breathtaking views that instil a sense of wonderment and freedom.
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.
