Our vision is to inspire and empower children to make a difference. We want children to respect and value the community they live in by developing a sense of belonging and making choices that impact positively on themselves, their families, the community and the environment. Community service and action will feature strongly in our curriculum and we encourage parents to be actively involved.
A School With A Difference
- Explore, Expand, Educate: Your child’s mind knows no boundaries! That’s why at Gecko we take children outside the four walls of the classroom, let them explore, touch and feel the world around them, helping them make sense of it and developing skills that will last a lifetime.
- Fun and Safe Learning Environment: At Gecko School children can free their minds and focus on what’s important – following their passions, acquiring knowledge and developing new skills in a clean, safe and stimulating environment.
- Small classes for big ideas: When it comes to class size – less is more! Gecko classes have always been, and will remain small, providing each child with individual attention from the teacher. We know all our children and all parents by their name – because that’s what friends do!
- Diverse and open-hearted community: Gecko is more than a school, it’s a community. Our students don’t just attend the school, they become a part of it. And so do the parents! Together we provide valuable service to the local community showing love and care to the island that we live on.
At Gecko Nursery School education is not limited to the four walls of the classroom. We view the outdoors as a classroom and make use of our rich surroundings. The playground is made from recycled materials and we actively encourage children to be involved in the decision-making process of the outdoor spaces. We want to provide our children with the opportunities to learn through nature.
Building A Community
We are a part of the place that we live in. That’s why connect our students with the local Phuket community. We see the community as a vital partner in the collaborative learning process so we take the children out into the community and bring the community into Gecko on an ongoing basis through excursions and incursions. As and when possible, we connect and encourage children’s investigations and research into their immediate natural world.
Parents As Partners
The education of a child is a shared responsibility, which is why we to establish genuine partnerships with parents. We see families, teaching staff and children as equal partners in the learning process and work together to contribute to the Nursery and local community in Phuket in a positive manner.
