About Us

Home » About Us


for Inspiring Young Minds.

At Thrive After-school Sanctuary, we are proud to be part of the Julia Gabriel Education family, which has been working with families for over 30 years. We have witnessed the transformative power of education, and we are excited to bring together the best of all Julia Gabriel programmes and the EduDrama® philosophy in one special place.

Julia Gabriel Education has always believed in the individual—the student at the heart of their learning journeys. Over the years, we have honed our approach, developing programmes that instill confidence, foster creativity, encourage collaboration, and inspire the courage to be individuals.

And now, with Thrive After-school Sanctuary, we take all that we do well and have distilled  it into one extraordinary after-school care programme. We have created an environment where children can truly thrive, where their potential is nurtured and their dreams are given wings.

Here  the children embark on a journey of discovery, companionship and success, guided by caring and competent educators who understand how precious time is. By making the most of every hour your child spends at Thrive After-school Sanctuary, we give you the time to spend together as a family, secure in the knowledge that homework, school preparation and essential enrichment activities have been taken care of by the end of each day.

With Thrive, after-school care found a new name.

Brand Vision

To be the beacon of after-school care, creating a place where every child can truly thrive, grow, and discover their unique potential.

Brand Mission

To provide a valuable after-school care programme that fosters confidence, creativity, and collaboration. By fully maximising the time spent in the programme, children and their families can make the most of their time spent together.

Brand Values


We believe in building meaningful connections with children, parents, and educators. We foster relationships based on mutual trust, respect, and understanding. By valuing and nurturing these relationships, we create a supportive community where everyone thrives.


We are passionate about unlocking the full potential of every child. With enthusiasm and dedication, we ignite a love for learning, inspire curiosity, and nurture their individual passions and talents. Our team is driven by a deep commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of children.


Just as bamboo stands strong yet flexible, we strive for balance in all aspects of our programme. We blend academic support, enrichment activities, mindfulness, and physical movement to provide a well-rounded experience. We honour both the child’s need for structure and their innate desire for exploration and self-expression.


We are committed to excellence in all that we do. We set high standards for ourselves and continuously seek ways to improve. Our educators are dedicated professionals who strive to deliver exceptional quality in education and care. We celebrate the achievements of our children, recognising that every milestone is a step toward their personal excellence.


At Thrive After-school Sanctuary, we prioritise the well-being and happiness of every child. We create a nurturing and safe environment where children feel supported, appreciated, and encouraged. We care for each other, our environment, and our work, ensuring that everyone can flourish and thrive.
