"After taking a short detour with another preschool we opted to enrol both of our girls at Gecko Garden School, which definitely turned out to be the best decision. We immediately felt the warmth of the school as we stepped in. The lovely teachers, the size,... a super homey feeling, where my girls love to come every day. We particularly love the creativity of the teachers with arts and crafts – I am surprised every day with a new masterpiece brought home."

"The first thing that hits you when you walk through the Gecko Garden School gates is a massive wave of warmth. There is a sense of belonging, a feeling of joy, and the sounds of happiness resonating from behind those magic gates that warms our hearts. To be able to leave our child (and soon to be our children) in an environment where they are not just nurtured, but loved as well, is a testament to how everyone in the school truly believes in what they do. Kudos and thank you everyone at Gecko Garden!"
Mother of 2 year old, India & Sri Lanka
"To be honest I didn’t search extensively for a preschool for our child. As soon as we entered the school I could tell that he would be happy growing and developing here with such an experienced group of teachers. Being a parent-run school also gave me the satisfaction of knowing that my child would be growing up in a community and not just another child in a system."

"The instant we walk through the gate we feel this warm and welcoming atmosphere, so different from my previous experiences! I also love that I can be so involved in my children’s first years in school. I won’t have that chance much longer!"

"We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience at Gecko Garden Preschool. Both of our children have been enrolled here.The focus on a play-based curriculum was what initially drew us to Gecko Garden Preschool, however it was the wonderfully happy relationships our children built with their teachers and peers which pleased us the most and which ultimately has made their lives in Phnom Penh so enjoyable."
Father of Frog student, Australia
"We chose Gecko Garden Preschool because many friends recommended it but, even then, I wasn’t prepared for how much it would impress me. The teaching staff are dedicated and caring beyond belief and my son is so happy there. He spends all his time playing and having fun yet he’s also constantly learning – not just his abc’s and his 123’s but life skills too."
Mother of Tadpole student, New Zealand
"Thank you Gecko Garden Preschool for providing my daughter with loving and caring teachers who have many years experience with children. On my daughter’s first day she walked in with her head down but came out with confidence! Most importantly she is able to interact with other kids from different backgrounds and cultures. It’s a wonderful place for preschoolers to experience learning from a young age."

"My kids are really happy to go to school every day. They cry when they are sick and not allowed to go!"

"PLAY!! The first thing that struck me when we attended Gecko Garden Preschool open day was all the toys! My boys ditched me at the gate, immediately started playing and didn’t stop until I had to lead them away crying. Each area is full of a wide range of age appropriate and diverse toys and the staff constantly engage the children in creative, educational spontaneous and structured play. They are constantly learning without realising it."
