PostedKensington Learning Space (KLS) : K Aqua Space
KLS is a brand new forward thinking learning space situated in the west of Bangkok City. Only a short distance (10 minutes) from the BTS (Sky train) with easy access to the world-famous, historic and vibrant city of Bangkok! The area and local community is steeped in Thai tradition, set in lush greenery with a tranquil and peaceful atmosphere.
The purpose built space with a futuristic design aims to offer innovative, creative learning in a fun way. The Space is part of the Kensington community which includes an award winning kindergarten school next door. Whilst Kensington International Kindergarten (https://kensington.ac.th) continues to attract government and educational attention from throughout SE Asia, KLS aims to not only complement our Kensington community but also accomplish something very different and very unique.
Kensington Learning Space will be providing enrichment sessions focused on a variety of areas for students from 6 months to 11 years. Our aim is to research and use the best curriculums from around the world. These will be taught in a creative and fun way, ensuring that every child who walks through our doors receives progressive education to prepare them for the future.
At KLS, we offer our K | Aqua Space, which is our swimming academy. We will be teaching swimming lessons from babies up to 9 year old students. Our purpose built pool space design is unique with first class facilities. The pool is semi indoors and specially designed to teach swimming. It is heated to an optimum 33 degrees. The pools have a salt chlorination system with UV sanitisation to provide hygienic, low odor/low irritant water.
Just like Kensington Kindergarten, KLS will embrace its community, and our parents will play an active role as they too become part of the ‘Kensington Family.’ Parent participation is recognised as an integral part of our education process.
