Learning made fun at Cayman International School

Instead of moaning, “I don’t want to go to school!” young students attending Cayman International School’s new Early Childhood Division might well sing a different refrain: “I don’t want to go home!”

The school’s new, modern, state-of-the-art facility welcomed young students aged two to four for the first time this month. The Early Childhood facility was purposely designed to accommodate Cayman International School’s play-based programme and it will, without question, make learning fun for its students.


Cayman Compass: Cayman International School gears up to open new preschool

The Grand Design: Universal Access

It was just last year that the Cayman Islands’ first Mobi-Mat was unveiled at the Seven Mile Public Beach, enabling people of all abilities to access the white sands and turquoise waters for which the country is known. The result of a partnership between Rotary Central and the National Council for Persons with Disabilities, the roll-out beach access pathway was also the first of its kind in the Caribbean. Since the launch of the first Mobi-Mat, a second pathway was installed at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, and the country’s third Mobi-Mat is slated for installation at Coral Beach, a new food and beverage amenity scheduled to open in July at the Camana Bay Beach.
