Hoşgeldiniz, Welcome, Bienvenue/Bienvenu, Herzlich Willkommen,
Bienvenidas, いらっしゃいませ!

Welcome to our Community School, our Ütopya Family, our Second Home! 

'We are making today, and each day, a beautiful life and learning experience for every child.
We are acting now, preparing them for tomorrow, providing the tools they need for their bright future.'

Since our foundation in 2007, we have been dedicated to creating a special and caring school, a community grounded in curiosity, independence, open-mindedness, deep learning and respect, where all children can thrive and express themselves freely and authentically.

We dream of a world where all children have a beautiful and safe childhood, experience love, joy and belonging, and grow their independence. Within our school community, we are working to realise this dream through being the village that every child needs. Our biggest hope is that all our students feel deeply cared for, experience a happy and healthy childhood, develop a true love of learning, discover and grow their skill and talents, develop a thoughtful, responsible and respectful attitude, and achieve their full potential throughout their whole lives! 

We believe it truly takes a village to raise a child, and we take our responsibility to be a central part of that community village experience very seriously. Our commitment is to work in partnership with parents, to support every child’s personal growth and emotional well-being, along with their academic learning, through developing their independence, social responsibility, and critical awareness. 

Through providing high-quality educational programs, differentiated teaching methods with individualised support and enriching experiences everyday, our goal is to prepare students; not only with the knowledge and skills they need for academic success today, but also to give them the essential and diverse life skills they need, to face all the real-world challenges of their 21st century future, with confidence and resilience.  

At Ütopya we are all Life-Long-Learners, always working hard to improve our programs, techniques and methods, to provide the most effective and meaningful support for every child. 

What makes our Ütopya special? 

“It takes a village to raise a child.”

We are working hard everyday to provide all our children with the genuine opportunity to explore and develop their individual strengths, experience a deep sense of belonging, enjoy the privileges, and take on the responsibilities inherent within community life; to create an enriching environment in which every child can flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. 

As part of our small school pedagogical approach, we intentionally offer small class sizes at every level, to make sure that each child receives the individual attention they need from our dedicated teachers, creating a caring and meaningful learning environment. So each child truly feels valued, loved, and supported. This is our highest priority. 

All of our daily activities take place within our beautiful school campus, which is lovingly and thoughtfully designed to provide the perfect environment for deep learning within a natural, safe space. Everyday, our talented cooks provide delicious homemade lunch and healthy snacks made with love, because we know how important a balanced and healthy diet is for the holistic well-being of every child and our whole community.   

Within the challenges and concerns of today's complex world, it is so important to us that our school environment is a truly special place of belonging, safety and connection. For us, Ütopya is actually so much more than a school, it is our extended family and second home. Together we are creating a foundational community experience for learning and for living.

We welcome you to join our community and be part of our Ütopya family!  

A special note to new parents interested in connecting with our school community:
We are deeply aware of the trust that you as parents place in us, when you choose us as partners in your child's development and educational journey. Our goal is for Ütopya to be a place of true belonging, creating the village environment in which we will work together hand in hand, with open communication, mutual respect, and shared goals, to nurture every aspect of your child's growth and well-being.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
