1A world first

Ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed with only young learn­ers in mind, the new Early Learn­ing Vil­lage has pur­pose-built fa­cil­i­ties and class­rooms with ad­join­ing out­door spa­ces tai­lored to the spe­cific learn­ing needs of dif­fer­ent age groups. Plus, there’s six out­door dis­cov­ery play spa­ces shaded to block 75 per­cent of UV for sun-safe play. Lit­tle swim­mers can prac­tice their strokes and wa­ter skills in the 22m swim­ming pool with vary­ing step heights cater­ing to dif­fer­ent pro­fi­ciency lev­els and abil­i­ties. And what kid wouldn’t love to show off their hand­stands and ac­ro­batic moves in the air-con­di­tioned gym, The Hive?
