About Us

Our Vision

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.

Learn­ing Out­doors

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.
