SmartKids Tran Ngoc Dien helps students find opportunities for development in every aspect of their lives and develop enthusiasm as the foundation for learning. The school’s mission is to encourage, support, and nurture the students’ love for learning by providing inspiring, exciting, and hands-on experiences on a regular basis, allowing students to deal with common daily situations and events. It focuses on the holistic development of each child and combines philosophies such as crafted by Montessori, Steiner, and Reggio Emilia into their North European inquiry-based programme.
The school provides parents’ with a handbook that contains pertinent information about the children’s day at the school. It also indicates the school’s rules and philosophy to help parents understand their children's education better. Aside from school activities, students are also given some quiet time. After eating their carefully prepared nutritious lunch, the children are lulled into a nap using mats, comforters, blankets, and pillows provided to each of them while the teaching staff supervises.
