Shining Star International Kindergarten applies the Montessori education method applying the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI standards), a well-known world-wide approach on educating children which focuses on learning through the senses and using a wide variety of concrete materials. Children are the center of the learning process, and teachers act as their guides and observers. Here children are loved, understood, and cared for, and are happily experiencing and overcoming challenges in their daily activities to become confident and successful citizens when they grow up.
Only with respect and freedoms can the child develop his or her full potentials while acquiring self-discipline without the need for the kind of discipline that is imposed. This Montessori philosophy has been Shining Star’s key guideline in educating children.

At Shining Star, children experience daily activities and live in a bilingual environment of English and Vietnamese. The immersion into English will help children acquire English as a second language in the most natural way.

Our native English teachers have TESOL certificates and experience in working with young children, and our Vietnamese teachers have Montessori AMI certificates.
Each Montessori standardized classroom at Shining Star is from 80m2 to 130m2, with an interior design like a home environment for children.

Shining Star builds and runs an organic farm in Soc Son District, about 30km from Hanoi. At the farm, children can take part in farming activities, experiencing with their senses to explore the natural environment. These activities will help develop the child’s potentials as well as desire to discover the world around them, to become more sensitive emotionally, to learn to live harmoniously with friends and nature.
To emphasize the importance of safe food and good nutrition for young children, Shining Star’s Board of Directors tries our best to supply clean and green food for our students. We provide a good variety of meals which are rich in nutrition and energy with most of the fresh products grown from Shining Star’s own organic farm. Other food materials are procured from high quality producers with verified certificates of origin.
