Discover
the Joy of Learning
at Early Years Centre (EYC)


Our Early Years Centre (EYC) offers preschool children an exceptional first educational experience that will introduce them to the joy of learning.

Garden International School EYC is a small school in its own right; providing a happy, secure, enriched environment in which children feel valued and have the self-confidence to become lifelong learners. Our learning environments both inside and outside, are well resourced and equipped with facilities, offering a range of multi-sensory learning opportunities.

The Jungle School Programme – the first of its kind in Malaysia – encourages young learners to take risks, explore and imagine through hands-on learning experiences in a natural environment.

Simply put, a child’s early years education lays the foundation for all that is to come. In recent years, researchers have learned that the human brain develops the vast majority of its neurons, and is at its most receptive to learning, between birth and four years of age.
Each child at the GIS EYC is offered a personalised learning experience that meets their individual needs, ensuring that the transition to primary school is seamless. Our open door policy enables parents to have regular opportunities to meet informally with their child’s teacher as well as to see their child interacting in the EYC learning environment.
We have a number of enrolment options with our Flexible Enrolment structure*, offering the choice between full-time or part-time opportunities. GIS EYC offers the best early years learning experience for your child.
