A New Habitat for The Purple Elephant

Saying good-bye to The Purple Elephant and the abode she called home for twenty years was a poignant reminder for all of us of the passage of time: in June 2016, The Purple Elephant, with many fond memories in tow, sauntered across the street to a newly designed habitat brimming with possibilities.

Situated at the end of a quiet soi on Thonglor, the new centre embodies the importance of relationships through the glass that connects the various spaces inside and out, an homage to the connectedness that reinforces the pedagogy of relationships, in turn supporting stronger and more meaningful learning. Meanwhile, the bamboo play structure enhances the beauty derived from using natural materials and reinforces the blending of old with new, pristine and perfect with recycled and repurposed, creating a lovely ambience in this stunning environment that is designed for children from eighteen months to three years of age.
