One! International School to open kindergarten at Ducat Place III

May 23, 2017. Investment company O1 Properties and the network of bilingual kindergartens, One! International School, have signed a tenancy agreement at the Ducat Place III business center (6 Gasheka Street) in Moscow. A new kindergarten will open in 592 sq.m. of space on the first floor of the business center in July 2017. The transaction was brokered by S.A. Ricci.

One! International School already operates at four other sites in Moscow, but Ducat Place III will be the first kindergarten opened by the company in the business district around Belarusskaya and  Mayakovskaya metro stations.

Maxim Natapov, the CEO of One! International School, said: "We are honored to be entering a joint project with O1 Properties. This is the beginning of landmark cooperation, because kindergartens in business centers can provide an important new service to the families of people who work there. We believe that a strong bond between children and parents and choice of the right educational institution is the best basis for teaching a child how to think, be healthy and happy, find out about the world and grow into an all-round person who can change this world for the better.”

Alexander Ostrovsky, the CEO of O1 Properties commented: "We conduct regular surveys of tenants to monitor the level of satisfaction with the services provided in our business centers. At Ducat Place III, where most of the tenants are foreign companies, respondents said that they would appreciate a kindergarten or leisure center, so that working parents could spend more time with their children and provide them with quality education in walking distance of the office. The cooperation with One! International School matches our strategy to create a modern life-style environment in business centers and to diversify the range of our services."

Alexey Bogdanov, the managing partner of S.A. Ricci, said: "This project is a good example of a new trend in the office market: the creation of developed infrastructure at office centers, that takes account of the wishes and needs of tenants. We already have business parks and business centers that include fitness clubs, sports areas and exhibition halls. The inclusion of a landmark educational project as part of a business center is a further step towards providing tenants with a comfortable and convenient working environment."

One! International School prepares children from the age of 18 months for admission to foreign schools, by providing care and education in a bilingual environment. One! International School employs professional teachers who are native speakers of a foreign language (English and Chinese) and uses the world-famous Montessori education system. When they reach school age the children can continue their education at schools in the One! International School network.
