About Us

Where the joy of learning begins.

In 1987 the Young School opened its first doors to young children and their families, and have remained dedicated to providing an innovative educational experience. The school pioneered the cottage learning environment (link to cottages), in which children become part of a nurturing community where they are active participants and learners. The Young School’s philosophy is influenced by the internationally acclaimed Reggio Emilia (link to Reggio page) and Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE) (link to RIE page) approaches to early childhood education.

Young School aims to inspire a lifelong love of learning by providing a thoughtful, nurturing environment for children that fosters creativity, independence and social confidence in a dynamic, joyful setting that is respectful of each child’s needs and individuality.
