FENIX children are curious, communicative, capable, confident, and respected.
We strive for our students to be competent global citizens.
Children are naturally curious and want to explore. It allows them to continually grow, learn and question what is around them. Expanding their vocabulary as they use language to describe what they’re thinking, seeing, hearing, or experiencing. A child’s natural curiosity forms the foundation to be successful adults by developing a sense of creativity and imagination.
All children are unique with their own characteristics, interests, strengths and weaknesses.
We respect and encourage their individuality throughout their learning to help create a strong sense of personal identity.
Early language immersion improves overall academic achievement by enhancing your child’s brain development, memory and cognitive learning.
Bilingualism promotes awareness, appreciation and acceptance of other peoples and cultures and increases social development such as communication and listening skills ensuring students are better prepared to fully function in a globalized society.
At FENIX International, we believe that children learn and develop most effectively through their play and social interactions.
Play is a means for exploration of the world for a child. Children use play to make meaning and connections. A play-based learning approach means your child will learn and develop an array of skills at their own pace and through their own interests.
From finger painting to creating unique shapes using building blocks, we work with your child’s inquisitive nature and desire to have fun.
These activities are designed to nurture curiosity and are a crucial part in developing social skills, motor skills and setting the foundations for their language and numeracy education.
Therefore, our curriculum is based off play-based learning and interest-based learning and follows the EYLF (Early Years Learning Framework).
Fenix does not assign foreign instructors to one class but adopts a system in which the instructors rotate throughout the various classes.
Although all instructors follow the same curriculum, each instructor brings a new style, a different accent and a different sense of humor to the classroom.
Children without a variety of teachers will grow dependant on their teacher’s accent, teaching style and vocabulary. Having only one teacher can hinder their development as they become accustomed to their particular style of teaching.
Rotating staff helps children become more adaptable by acquiring the ability to talk to all kinds of people irrespective of their age, accents, and backgrounds. This helps your child to have a truly multicultural experience and lays the foundations for your child becoming a competent and global citizens.
We provide safe, secure, well balanced and delicious meals we know kids will love prepared in collaboration with Kamu Kamu Bento. There are many different options available in addition to the ever-increasing number of new menu items every month. All meals have had the calories, protein, fat and salt equivelants calculated by nutritionists and all food allergens are listed.
