Kinderland International Education (KIE) has forged a new partnership with Bright Early Learning Centre (Bright ELC) of Melbourne, Australia. This heralds a new era as it marks KIE’s first inroads into the Australian market.

Bright Early Learning Centre is located just off High Street Road, a stone’s throw away from the heart of Glen Waverley, between Springvale Road and the Eastern Freeway

Established in 2011, Bright ELC is located in one of Australia’s most populated suburbs, Glen Waverley. Serving a community of international families, the centre has a built-up area of about 560 sqm, with a capacity for 71 children in 6 classrooms. Bright ELC has an ample outdoor play space including a sand play area, cubby house, Aboriginal learning corner, musical wall, vegetable patch and more.

For over 40 years, KIE has been on a strong growth trajectory, having established itself in eight Asia-Pacific countries (Singapore, Australia, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Bangladesh) with more than 80 centres. Besides its quality infant care and preschool services, KIE has grown to greater heights with more core businesses such as an international primary school and a human capital development arm.

Mr Robert Leong, Chief Executive Officer, KIE, said “This partnership is a significant step forward in growing our international footprint. We identify with the vision and values that Bright ELC upholds as both are passionate about offering the highest standard of care in empowering young minds to realise their highest potential.”
