“Preschool” promotes a balanced comprehensive education such as “theme education incorporating presentation” and “math / science / social studies / music / P.E. / swimming / show & tell”. Based on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) Early Years Stage for preschoolers from 3-6 years old.

It offers students the opportunity to achieve high level English skills through the six transdisciplinary subjects to develop inquiry while simultaneously developing a mature sense of humanity, global consciousness and be problem thinkers. Both of these goals led students to intercultural understanding and respect to be international mindedness.
