LA PETITE ÉCOLE HO CHI MINH
THE PEHCM ADVENTURE
La Petite Ecole is a bilingual nursery, preschool and primary school, providing teaching in French and English. It is located in the Thao Dien district, in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and has been open since 2017. It received approval from the French Ministry of Education in 2020, a guarantee of the quality of education provided, and is a partner of the AEFE (French Foreign Education Agency). This year, La Petite Ecole Ho Chi Minh has over 175 pupils.
La Petite Ecole provides educational continuity from the nursery (age 1) up to the 5th year of primary school – Cycle 3 (CM2). The French national curriculum is taught at primary level (Cycle 1 and Cycle 2), in both French and English, by two native language teachers. In order to ensure high-quality education, the teaching team receives training throughout the year, internally, as well as through their partnership with the French Foreign Education Agency (AEFE).
The school welcomes families from all walks of life. It is open to its host country, its language and its culture.
And it is within this caring family structure that children play, build, learn and evaluate themselves. With a 4,500 m2 campus, La Petite Ecole provides high-quality infrastructure: well-lit classrooms, two libraries, an auditorium, an art room and a music room, several language rooms, a 25-meter swimming pool, a football pitch, two playgrounds and much more.
An innovative and unique educational system places the child at the heart of learning, and promotes autonomy, curiosity and motivation by integrating the use of new technologies.
