Join our Holistic Kindergarten Journey
At Seeds of Phangan International Kindergarten, we believe in a holistic education which focuses on the whole child and encourages student engagement in the learning process.
We prioritize social, emotional, creative, physical and spiritual learning as much as intellectual skills to foster the development of confident, curious and well rounded individuals.
Children need a balance of routine, self-guided and teacher-led learning. This allows them space to explore their own interests, while we support and facilitate their learning to reach their full potential.
Planting seeds of learning
The first 5 years of a child's life are foundational for a healthy and happy future!
Our experienced and certified teachers follow the British EYFS curriculum and are skilled at creating a positive learning environment. Children's sense of belonging grows as we water their seeds with love and care to help them sprout into beautiful, unique flowers.
In our classroom, we and passionately nurture artistic expression for students of ages 2-5 years old. Learners have the opportunity to express their creativity through free play, role play and art activities. The Seedlings have daily morning circles (~ 30 min) all together to develop their skills and create a classroom community.

HOW DOES A MIXED AGE GROUP WORK?
At Seeds, having a mixed-age group of 2-5 year old children creates a community of learners who support and care for one another.
In the morning, all children are together as a group for free play, circle time, arts and crafts and outdoor play. This allows the older children to develop leadership roles, while the little ones benefit from interactions in both age groups. All meals are enjoyed together as well.
In the afternoon, each child receives quality education suited to their current development. The Sunflowers (2-3.6 years) have a mandatory story and naptime. The Bumblebees (3.6-5 years) have a calming time and project based lessons with a qualified part-time teacher. Instructions follows the British EYFS curriculum and ties into the theme of the week.
In a mixed-age environment, our Seedlings develop an array of key traits such as confidence, empathy and collaboration amongst their peers. They are guided and challenged by educators who tailor the children's learning based upon their individual needs.
Please note that it's not possible to join the afternoon lesson before the age of 3.6 years old. After reaching this age, it's the parents decision if they wish to extend the naptime for their child.
Children can feel security under our care since they are always surrounded by peers and teachers who can offer support.
