IB Primary Years Programme

“The IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for children aged 3 – 12 nurtures and develops young students as caring, active participants in a lifelong journey of learning.”

Welcome to NIK!

A Community of Passionate Educators and Learners

At NIK, we believe all children’s social and emotional well-being is key to reaching their full potential. This is an inclusive place for young learners to explore and learn about the world around them.

Purposeful play-based experiences provide powerful learning opportunities for students to engage and extend their existing ideas as they develop and apply new ways of understanding how the world works.

Caring, nurturing teachers seek to support each child as an intelligent, capable, creative and resourceful individual who knows how to work together with others effectively.

Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to Namsan International Kindergarten (NIK)!

We are fortunate to have purpose built facilities with a large outdoor playground and are located in the heart of Seoul. Our outdoor spaces and learning experiences provide children with the opportunity to interact and appreciate nature.

Schools are a community of diverse people, and great schools attract passionate, experienced teachers to meet the learning needs of their community. NIK teachers come from a variety of countries including America, Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom bringing with them substantial early years and international teaching experience.

Our teachers are responsive to children’s unique abilities and intentionally plan for the individual learning needs of our children.

Children who have a positive start to school are more likely to feel comfortable, valued, and have a strong, positive attitude towards life long learning. I believe that one thing that defines NIK as a quality learning environment, is the desire to combine the best teachers with a responsive educational programme, in a caring learning environment.

NIK encourages parents to be actively involved in their child’s education and learning through our school community.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about NIK. I encourage you to contact us for a school visit soon!
