Our Blue Moon campus, founded by Jacquelyn Price in 2007, opened as part of the Generation Schools family In January 2018. Under her leadership, this campus strives to provide a carefully planned stimulating environment that assists children with developing within themselves the foundational habits, attitudes, skills, and ideas that are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning as active community participants.
Generation Schools welcomes all our new students and staff members to a vibrant, innovative and engaged family, where we strive to develop a community within a school environment.
Our Blue Moon campus caters for students from the age of three to 12 years.
