Welcome to Montessori International School of Vietnam
Dear Parents and Guardians,
We welcome you to the Montessori International School of Vietnam, the first and oldest Montessori school in Vietnam – founded 2007.
The Montessori Method focuses on allowing a child to learn in a hands-on setting, which is designed to cater to each child’s individual needs and unique personality. Our children (from 1.5 year to 12 year olds) are introduced to many new themes and concepts in the prepared environments of our classrooms. These themes spur their curiosity and excitement, and motivate them to work with materials independently. They develop scientific and critical thinking skills working with the Montessori materials and Montessori-trained teachers. They discover learning through interaction with each other and develop character, good manners and courteous behaviour. In our school’s safe environment, children are nurtured to grow socially, emotionally and intellectually. Combined with an internationally mixed Faculty and student body (over 30 different nationalities represented over the years and roughly 15 different nationalities any given year), we believe our school and curriculum help create well-rounded citizens for the global village.
Our classrooms and curriculum are designed to enhance the senses of our children. We work with them in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, Maths, Culture, Science and Motor Skills. The Montessori Method aims to open children’s minds towards academic development and helps them reach their highest level of potential as individuals.
Children are curious by nature and they love to explore. In our classrooms, we strive to constantly create environments that keep this joy of discovery kindled. As educators, we observe them through their developmental stages and guide them during these most important stages of their growth.
We welcome you to take a tour of our school, meet with our staff, and tell us about the likes and preferences of your child. Through the course of the school year, we invite you to come share your talents and your cultural backgrounds with our children that help in further broadening their world view. We encourage, cultivate and enjoy this interaction. As Dr. Maria Montessori said, “The essential thing is to arouse such an interest that it engages the child’s whole personality.”
Please contact the Admissions Office for a personal appointment and a school tour.
Thank you for your interest and I hope to see you soon!
Head of School
