The Countdown Is Over - Our Early Learning Village Is Now Open!

Published by

Early last year, the Australian International School announced its plans to build a new campus for young learners aged 18 months to 6 years old, right next door to the existing school in Lorong Chuan. After months of construction, the brand new Early Learning Village finally opened its doors for the first time on Monday 17th July, and the reaction from our students, parents and staff was one of excitement and delight as they explored this fantastic new building.

Stilt walkers, balloon makers and giant koalas were there to welcome families to the new Early Learning Village, and there was a host of exciting activities happening all over the campus. Head of Early Years, Adam Patterson was thrilled to see so many families enjoying the day. He said ‘You can really feel the energy and excitement throughout the Early Learning Village today. Every parent, child and visitor that I’ve had the pleasure to talk to has been so upbeat about the new building and it’s great to finally see it being used for its primary purpose – educating and engaging our young learners.’

Joining us for the grand opening was Australian High Commissioner Bruce Gosper, Deputy Australian High Commissioner Kate Duff, and Deputy New Zealand High Commissioner Laura Grey, who were all excited to take a first look at the facilities on offer at the Early Learning Village. From the sprawling outdoor play decks filled with sensory play equipment, to the bright and spacious Reggio-Emilia inspired classrooms, every detail of this new learning space has been expertly designed to cater to the needs of young children. 

The Early Years students at the Australian International School, including those in the Prep year of the Elementary School, had the chance to explore their new school for the first time and settle in to their classrooms. There were a number of new starters who will join our existing Early Years cohort for the start of what is sure to be a very exciting term in the Early Years.

Principal, Andre Casson said ‘We are incredibly proud of our new Early Learning Village and we would like to extend a warm welcome to our new families who are joining us at this exciting time. Our aim is to provide a world class educational experience for our young learners and we have created an environment where each and every child can truly thrive. Inquiry-based learning is at the center of what we do here in Early Years at the Australian International School, and this new building provides the perfect setting for this learning to happen.’
