“We have a passion in nurturing the future of our world, young children, to become kind and happy lifelong learners. We wish to do this through a balanced approach of developing physical growth, emotional intelligence, social skills, and academic knowledge, while ensuring parents and qualified teachers are the key components in delivering this vision. We highly value Thai culture and etiquette, and believe that this should be cultivated in children while encouraging them to have respect for one and all; and to positively contribute to the world we live in.”

“As a teacher and a mum, I am passionate in my role of guiding each child to discover and maximize their individual potential in their learning journey. It is very important to me that children feel secure and comfortable to voice their opinions and curiosity in their quest for knowledge.
I firmly believe that we must work together to cultivate kindness and respect for one another into the seeds of our future generation; and I truly aspire for this to be achieved at Bright Seeds.”

“Taking into consideration that children spend more than thousands of hours in school life, I believe that a well-designed learning environment, along with a supportive teaching and learning team are the most crucial factors for our students at Bright Seeds. Here, we value your trust in us to do our best during one of the most important period of your child’s development. We will guide your child through the learning journey that is most fitting for him/her with the belief that every child is born with the potential to learn, just not on the same day or in the same way.”
