Our aim is to give a new alternative for children in a bilingual French and English environment, to learn and grow through new pedagogic approaches.
The foundations of the Institution des Collines are built on the French and British education systems, in addition, we feel it paramount to integrate the education systems of additional multilingual countries such as Switzerland, Canada and Belgium. Italian, German and Mandarin languages are available options. We follow the lines of Sir Ken Robinson and we embrace some of the educational philosophies of Montessori, Céline Alvarez, Regio Emilia and Ovide Decroly.
Today’s greatest challenge for any human being is to adapt to the constant changes shaping the world. People born in early 2000s, will commonly live past 2100 and children starting school in 2020 will start retiring from 2080 onwards; and yet, nobody has any idea what the world will be like at this time. Parents and educators have the responsibility to prepare this young generation to a future nobody knows about…
And while this uncertainty may seams daunting, it is also equally exciting. For those well prepared, this future will bring numerous new opportunities and rewarding challenges.
At the Institution des Collines, we have decided to educate our young students - we call them “residents” - to remain avid thinkers, free minds, curious and aware of those changes in their environment. As educators, it means recognizing the very nature of the children, since for most of them, they are born this way. Our methods and curriculum allow our residents to develop their skills while keeping these incredible qualities of their very nature.
At Institution des Collines, we have decided to offer our residents, their parents and educators with an environment where they will be free to develop their own talents, yet learning how to use the tools, mainly intellectual but also physical, they will need in their future.
Let’s not forget one important thing: we provide parents with a service for children in a privileged environment in the heart of Thao Dien - District 2 of Saigon - Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, at flexible and extended hours.
It allows parents to have more time and freedom for their professional or personnal projects.
