Trivandrum International School (TRINS) Launches Early Learning Centre in Technopark
Thiruvananthapuram: Trivandrum International School has launched its newest and largest Early Learning Centre facility in Technopark - TRINS ELC, which could easily be among the world’s best preschools for children from the ages of 6 months to 6 years. IT Parks Kerala CEO Hrishikesh Nair inaugurated the facility on April 11. ‘Every detail has been thoughtfully designed by internationally reputed architects and interior designers, with materials being carefully selected to ensure child safety and high levels of hygiene’, said George M Thomas, President of TRINS.
Open from 8 am to 8 pm year-round, this sprawling purpose-built centre is 35,000 sq.ft., equipped with a pool, 10,000 sq.ft. of landscaped gardens and play area. The building also includes anti-skid, environment-friendly rubber flooring and padded walls. The building is centrally air-conditioned and monitored under CCTV surveillance. In addition to day-care and kindergarten, there are features like after-school care and summer camps, with corporate packages, keeping in mind the working parents at Technopark, provided for children up to the age of 12 years.
‘These options are meant to give working mothers flexibility and peace of mind that their children are in the care of trusted professionals who are trained in helping the child develop holistically, in a space equipped with age-appropriate toys, books, furniture, and activity spaces’, says Executive Director of TRINS, Sapnu George.
There is an exclusive infant care space, complete with separate sleeping and play areas, diaper-changing areas, and a nursing room for mothers to be able to drop in and feed their babies. Some other interesting spaces include a performing arts room, little chef’s kitchen, outdoor art area, ‘enchanted’ story-telling room, a sunny library filled with reading nooks, a sensory garden, and an indoor soft gym. No television access and freshly cooked dietician-planned meals provided to the pre-schoolers, are some other features that will put parents at ease.
Centre Head, Sharayu Thampi says, ‘We prepare our students for this fast-changing world by honing their skills of enquiry, encouraging fearless exploration and nurturing their independent thinking and creative problem-solving skills.’ TRINS ELC offers a play-based curriculum with reassuringly low adult-child ratios. TRINS ELC will have an unmatched adult-child ratio with staff members who are both experienced and qualified in childcare, and a full-time nurse on campus. It will be an all-women team.
Fees start at Rs.7000/-. Admissions are open, and classes begin on Wednesday, 24th April, 2019.
