Namsan International Kindergarten


Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Namsan International Kindergarten, consulted by Seoul Foreign School. NIK is fortunate to have purpose built facilities with a large outdoor playground and is located in the heart of Seoul. Our outdoor spaces and learning experiences provide children with the opportunity to interact and appreciate nature with the aim of developing a deep understanding of their role to care for our world. Schools are a community of diverse people, and great schools attract passionate, experienced teachers to meet the learning needs of their community. NIK teachers come from a variety of countries including America, Australia and the United Kingdom bringing with them substantial early years and international teaching experience. Our teachers are responsive to children’s unique abilities and intentionally plan for the individual learning needs of our children.

Children who have a positive start to school are more likely to feel comfortable, valued, and have a strong, positive attitude towards life long learning. Choosing a school with a specialized early years program for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make for your child. I believe that one thing that defines NIK as a quality early years school environment, is the desire to combine the best teachers with a responsive programme, in a caring learning environment. At NIK, we understand that a positive transition to an early years’ school environment, impacts how a child successfully accesses their future learning.

NIK encourages parents to be actively involved in their child’s education and learning through our school community.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about NIK. I encourage you to contact us for a school visit soon!
