The Planet Discovery Centre set in a campus of 14 acres of wilderness provides a nature-based early learning programme that support growth across the development domains and foster skills in areas such as language, thinking, confidence, self-regulation and motor development to prepare students for formal schooling.
The Planet Discovery Centre brings over 30 years of CEE’s experience as well as international experience along with local adaptability to build synergies to infuse citizenship among children making the world a better place to stay.
As children learn to care for themselves and others, they also begin to learn to care for the world around them. Experiencing and learning about the environment in early childhood builds a foundation for lifelong environmental literacy. The global research has shown that a early start with nature based education leads to increased mastery of academic content, enhanced student enthusiasm for Discovery Centre, a happy child with fewer discipline or behavioural issues, better teamwork and problem solving skills, improved social connectivity for students and teachers and increased levels of physical activity.
The Discovery Centre will enhance understanding of sustainable development to give a unique opportunity to endorse attitudes, strategies and technologies which are environmentally sustainable.
