KONIS, English Montessori School, Pyeoungchang-dong, Seoul
Kids Of the Nations International School (KONIS) - Montessori Pre-School and Kindergarten - is for children 18 months – 7 years old.
Each class has 2 Montessori trained teachers with a maximum of 16 students.
Collectively we have over 30 years experience running Montessori preschools and kindergartens.
Mr. Mark, our director, has been involved with Montessori for 12 years.
Miss Lee, has been involved with Montessori here in Korea for 19 years.
Here’s a look at our day:
We follow the Montessori Method in the mornings where we follow the child and their “work”.
Our Chef prepares a fresh homemade lunch here at KONIS.
After lunch our Director Mr. Mark, on occasion, provides instruction in hockey, basketball, baseball, tennis, soccer and golf as sports are his passion and specialty.
Our afternoons are spent using an Early Childhood 42 week curriculum which focuses on art, science, crafts, cooking and creativity.
KONIS was specifically designed and built with children in mind in September 2008.
Our facilities have a peaceful park, backyard playground and rooftop vegetable garden that the children plant, cultivate and eat. We have a waterfall, 2 small pools and a deck for water play. Outside we have 2 jungle gyms to climb on and a playhouse for children to have fun.
Why Montessori? Through the prepared environment, highly trained teachers, freedom of choice and well defined discipline the children learn at their own pace. Children have absorbent minds which take in everything they see, hear taste and touch. Montessori believes that the hands are the way to the mind so the children are free to explore the ever evolving prepared environment. The four key goals of the Montessori Method are concentration, order, coordination and independence. We refer to this as their COCI skills.
We aim to create the character values of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.
We strive to create curious, courteous, courageous and confident children who can easily absorb, excel and adapt in an ever changing world.
Classes begin at 9:30 and finish at 2:30 pm.
We offer an extended program from 2:30 to 6:00 pm which focuses on sport, real life problem solving and applying the skills learnt during the day.
We have parent education workshops on the third Tuesday every month of the year. Feel free to come and attend and ask additional questions.
Bus transport is available.
