Energy Efficiency and Ecological Resilience

Utilising solar panels, the centre harnesses the power of the sun, while integrated energy and control systems ensure optimal use of lighting and air-conditioning.
Large windows allow for ample natural ventilation, and heat-reflecting paint helps maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, all while reducing energy consumption!
Use of Sustainable Materials and Upcycling
KiddiWinkie Schoolhouse takes pride in using environmentally friendly materials with green label certification. By reducing the institution’s ecological footprint and promoting energy and water savings, the centre serves as a model for sustainable construction.
Moreover, through a dedicated recycling setup, children are encouraged to embrace upcycling, fostering a sense of responsibility and creativity in repurposing materials.
Cook in a Fully-Furnished Child-Friendly Kitchen
A major highlight of the Jurong Gateway centre’s curriculum is the Cook and Bake Child-Friendly Kitchen. Children have the opportunity to explore various culinary cultures, develop essential kitchen skills, and even learn basic dining etiquette.
