Julia Gabriel Preschool at Keppel Bay
A preschool providing stunning views and a tranquil atmosphere.
Julia Gabriel Education, a prominent figure in early childhood education, has inaugurated its latest preschool at Keppel Bay – Julia Gabriel Preschool at Keppel Bay in January 2024! This significant achievement coincides with the rebranding of Chiltern House Preschools, now renamed Julia Gabriel Preschools since the beginning of the year, consolidating the institution under a unified identity.
Serious About School feels privileged to have been among the first to catch a glimpse of this brand-new preschool, situated amidst the captivating views of Keppel Bay. We were not only impressed by the school's aesthetics but also by the warmth and hospitality extended by the teachers. The sight of cheerful children from every class further heightened the joyous atmosphere. In such an environment, one could truly grasp the happiness permeating every inch! We are eager to share our firsthand experience (check out our video too!) here.
Every morning, students are welcomed by an inviting reception area, situated across from a snug reading corner.
Brightly lit classrooms feature breathtaking views through the windows.
Even the restrooms appear remarkably new and well-maintained.
There is also a large outdoor playground just around the corner, dedicated for Julia Gabriel Preschool kids! Unfortunately, when we visited, it was still in the process of being fully developed, and the rain made it difficult to take a favorable shot. However, we understand that the outdoor play area will be ready very soon, promising enjoyable moments for these lucky children.
