42/1 Ngo Quang Huy, Thao Dien, District 2, Ho Chi Minh City

We opened our beautiful Thao Dien campus in 2007. It was the first Montessori school in Vietnam and has since paved the way for many more! 

Just a short walk, bicycle ride or drive from many international residential complexes in Thao Dien, or a 15 minute drive from Binh Thanh District and District 1, MIS Thao Dien is conveniently located for the Vietnamese community and many key expat areas in Ho Chi Minh City.

Facilities at MIS Thao Dien

As with all Montessori schools, MIS Thao Dien is designed to offer lessons, activities and tools that match the interests and needs of each student.

Our classrooms are prepared to provide a peaceful, uncluttered environment. Social interaction is encouraged by providing open spaces and everything that your child comes into contact with is designed to encourage exploration and independent learning.

Our classrooms are well designed with large windows to allow lots of natural light plus air conditioning and fans to provide a comfortable learning environment. They are also fitted with air purifiers to ensure that the air inside remains healthy when outdoor air quality is poor.

Montessori International School Vietnam Thao Dien also has a beautiful outdoor space where your child can run, jump, skip and play in a safe and secure environment. 

Our outdoor space offers a haven for children to run around and explore. Equipt with a climbing frame, a play structure, a sand pit, and an area to grow herbs and other plants for class activities, our outdoor space is a fun and exciting environment that your child will love! 

Daily Schedule at MIS Thao Dien

The primary goal of a Montessori programme is to help each child reach their potential. The daily schedule at our Thao Dien campus provides activities that develop social and academic skills, help your child to grow emotionally, and improve their physical coordination. Under the direction of a highly trained Montessori teacher, your child will experience the joy of learning in a nurturing and stimulating environment.

The term ‘Montessori Work’ is used for the time when students are able to learn through activities of their own choice. This ‘purposeful play’ time is the foundation of the Montessori method.

‘Circle Time’ is another essential part of a day at a Montessori school. It gives students and teachers a chance to discuss the themes or topics of the week. It is also time for students to build relationships as they greet each other at the start of a new day.

Admissions at MIS Thao Dien

At all of the Montessori International School of Vietnam campuses, admission is not based on ability. Our aim is to provide a safe and stimulating environment for our students. We are sensitive to their individual needs. Testing their ability at such a young age does neither of these things.

Instead, we offer open enrollment where admissions are based on application dates and availability.

Let us get to know each other and if MIS Thao Dien is the right choice for you, we would be delighted to welcome you to our school.
