Kidz Village International Kindergarten is located on 7 rai of land and is purposively designed to incorporate the natural environment into the learning spaces. Fundamental to the design and organization of the school is the belief that “nature is important to children’s development in every major way; intellectually, emotionally, socially, spiritually and physically“ (Kellert, 2005). The school environment is rich with shade provided by trees. It includes a green house, natural flowing canal, gardens and a farm area. A variety of beautiful plants and flowers can be seen throughout along with fresh produce grown here on the school farm.
Our classrooms are designed and influenced by traditional Thai architecture with high ceilings and full wall door openings to provide maximum airflow and allow us to minimize our use of air conditioning. The spacious playgrounds, garden and school animals allow our students to extend their learning across a wide range of environments applying skills and knowledge to multiple contexts. At Kidz Village International Kindergarten our belief that children thrive in a natural learning environment is evident through both the design of the physical environment and the range of opportunities our students are encouraged to engage in.
