Our highly qualified and experienced teachers
Great teachers can ignite creativity and a love of learning. All our teachers are fully qualified and have years of experience working with, and nurturing, young children. Our Early Years teaching team builds great relationships with our parents and shares their knowledge and expertise through regular parent workshops, parent meetings, reports, online learning portfolios, formal and informal updates. Our parents say that our teachers are exceptionally approachable and knowledgeable, and that it is easy to talk to our staff or ask them questions so that parents can support their children at home.
Personalised learning approach
Personalised learning is at the heart of the British Vietnamese International School, Ho Chi Minh City. We treat your child as an individual by adapting to their personal learning preferences, strengths, and areas for growth. We focus on how your child develops; we recognise that every child is different but should be treated equally. Your child's teacher will plan personalised, engaging and inspiring learning experiences to allow your child to develop their interests and meet the curriculum objectives for their age. Throughout their time in Early Years your child’s Class Teacher will provide you with their ‘next step’s’ in Learning and development.
A supportive and close partnership with parents
At BVIS, we recognise that parents are the most important people in a child’s life. Therefore, we want to work closely with parents and we value the importance of effective communication with you in order to share your child’s learning. There are number of ways in which we do this such as individual learning portfolios using the ClassDojo platform, weekly newsletters and parent meetings.
Our staggered entry
At BVIS, we run a ‘staggered entry’ programme, tailored to each child to allow them to confidently transition into full time school. ‘Staggered entry’ is used as a means of getting to know your child and of giving them the time, care and attention that they need as they start a new school. It allows your child to get to know the adults, routines and structures of the environment gradually, so that they do not become overwhelmed by all the new things that they have to learn. Our Foundation 1 children usually take a little longer during the staggered entry programme compared to the Foundation 3 children, but all children are different, and we work with you as parents and carers to decide on the most appropriate schedule for your child.
