THE Oasis Preparatory School, which opened in Kellyville on April 26 and started lessons yesterday with five children enrolled, is offering a healthy environment.
School director Katie Brown said she researched products to make the centre free of chemicals.
"I believe in a healthy child, healthy world philosophy.
"All toys are environmentally friendly; we use organic cotton, non-toxic paints, bamboo floors and recycled plastic with no [chemical] BPA," Ms Brown said.
She said the school was ideal for parents who didn't know where their children might attend primary school.
"We're the only stand-alone prep-school in The Hills."
Educational leader Karen Barnes said sustainability had a strong influence in children's learning.
"It's important to teach them to care for their world and other people in their world."
There will be a garden for the children to grow vegetables.
The Oasis Preparatory can accommodate 25 children aged four and five years and the owners have a 25-year lease on the building.
