Small school for big ideas

Gecko Nursery in Thalang – a school well known for its different, wider outlook on early years education, is set to begin its fourth school year on August 22.

Recent weeks have been busy at Gecko Nursery, with intense preparations for the new school year. Cleaning, painting, gardening and re-arranging of the school interiors have all taken place to accommodate an influx of children aged 3 to 7, who will be joining the classes for the new school year. But while new students continue to joint Gecko, the school remains true to its goals of keeping the classes small and the atmosphere open and friendly.

Located in a garden villa in Thalang, on the shortcut to Phuket International Airport, Gecko Nursery has long been known to provide a child-centric, inquiry-based education to children, whose parents look for a more intimate and friendly learning experience for their offspring. And now, under new management and with an expanded teaching team, the goals remain the same – lots of outdoors activities, mindfulness as part of the curriculum and supporting the local community while building one within the school as well.

To that last goal the Gecko will join a renowned beach resort to organise beach cleanups, Club Days and other activities inside and outside the school. And as always, parents are invited to participate in all Gecko events, and not just on Club Days when Gecko sees mums and dads teaching their own, unique skills to the students.

With new, passionate teachers on board and new co-owners who share Gecko’s funders vision of providing a different kind of education in Phuket, Gecko Nursery moves forward while remaining the small school for big ideas than children and parents love.
