NIK (Namsan International Kindergarten), Jung-gu, Seoul
NIK is an IB PYP School for international children aged 2-6 years old. We are fortunate to have purpose built facilities with a beautiful, large outdoor playground and are located in the heart of Seoul. At NIK, we strive towards developing internationally minded young people who understand the importance of their role in caring for each other and the world around them. The school’s early years’ program is inspired by the Reggio Emilio approach which draws on a child’s natural curiosity to develop his/her creativity and personal capabilities within the curricular framework of the PYP.
NIK's inquiry-based program is based on the well known belief that young children learn best when immersed in an environment of wonder, care, and exploration. Purposeful play-based experiences designed by our teachers provide learning opportunities for students to extend their existing ideas and develop new ways of understanding how the world works. These learning opportunities also aim to further develop social skills, communication skills, sensory skills, motor skills, and intercultural awareness. This is achieved through thoughtfully planned small group and individual learning activities.
We welcome you to contact us for a personal tour of our exceptional early years campus!
School Bus Service
We offer a door-to-door service with trained drivers and a teacher aid on each bus. Access to public transport is also conveniently located seconds away from the campus.
