About Us

Orchard Kinder treasures the growth of children in a multilingual environment, focusing on bilingual education to bring out each child's talent and potential to the fullest.

Based on the founder's own experiences and deep understanding of early childhood education, we aim to provide a safe environment where children can learn the joy of learning and independence.

At Orchard Kinder, we believe in teaching 'how to learn' rather than just imparting knowledge, respecting each child's individuality while enriching their future with quality education.

Parent Testimonials

Let's introduce some warm words we've received from parents through their experiences at Orchard Kinder. These testimonials demonstrate the impact of our educational programs and dedicated staff support on children and their families.

"My child used to never sit still, but recently, he has started cleaning up his toys on his own. Perhaps he finds school incredibly fun, as he never wants to leave when I come to pick him up."
— S.T. (Parent of a 2.5-year-old boy)
"I'm impressed with how clean, organized and large your school is. It was obvious from my conversation with you that you and your staff care deeply for the children as a whole and as individuals and I love your teaching philosophy."
— K.S. (Parent of a 2-year-old girl)
"He has become much better at speaking at home, looking after his younger sibling, and helping out. Perhaps his English listening skills have improved? When I play Western music CDs, he sings along."
— M.Y. (Parent of a 4-year-old boy)
"Our son enjoys going to school, and he has grown and developed tremendously since he started there. We know he is not the "easiest" child, and we appreciate your hard work and attention with him. We feel Orchard Kinder has been very good for him."
— A.M. (Parent of an 4-year-old boy)
"Now, learning means fun for him, and he seems to love his class as much as he loves playing. Right after getting home, he is eager to go back to school, showing boundless enthusiasm."
— N.M. (Parent of a 3-year-old boy)

These voices show how special our community is for the children and their families. Orchard Kinder provides an environment where each child can grow at their own pace, learn, and have fun.
