177/8 Nguyen Van Huong, Thao Dien, District 2, Ho Chi Minh City

Nestled on the banks of the Saigon River, The River House Montessori offers a wonderful environment for your child to learn and grow. Opened in September 2020, The River House sits below the leaves of the tall trees of Thao Dien, providing your child with a pleasant, safe space to enjoy nature and experience the world around us.

Just a few hundred metres from international standard accommodation such as Xii, D’edge, Tropic Garden and River Garden and HAGL Riverview at the Northern end of Thao Dien, The River House Montessori is conveniently located for many key expat areas in Ho Chi Minh City. Vinhomes Central Park in Binh Thanh District is just a 12 minutes drive away, whilst downtown District 1, is about 20 minutes.

Facilities at The River House Montessori

As with all Montessori International School of Vietnam campuses, The River House is designed to offer lessons, activities and tools that match the interests and needs of each student.

The prepared environment of our classrooms provides a peaceful, beautiful environment to learn in. 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 have large windows but are also air conditioned to provide a comfortable learning environment. They also use air purifiers to ensure that the air inside remains healthy when outdoor air quality is poor. 

The River House Montessori Thao Dien also has a variety of outdoor spaces where your child can play, paint, explore or even do a bit of gardening.! We have a large white sand pit, different swing sets, a climbing frame and other play equipment to keep out students active. For older students, we have a beautiful swimming pool. The outdoor playground looks right onto the Saigon river and our children get a chance to enjoy looking at boats cruising by throughout the day.

Schedule at The River House Montessori Thao Dien

The primary goal of a Montessori programme is to help each child reach their full potential. The daily schedule at The River House campus provides a routine that can improve the health and well being of your child. Daily activities are designed to build social and academic skills, help your child to grow emotionally, and to 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 The River House Montessori 

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. If you think The River House may be the right choice for you, we invite you to spend some time with us. Come and see an authentic Montessori school and get to know our staff and students. Let us get to know each other and if MIS The River House is the right choice for you, we would be delighted to welcome you to our school.
