ACACIA, A Multilingual International School

ACACIA International Preschool opened its doors in 2008 welcoming children from 18 months to 6 years of age. It is the first preschool in Southeast Asia that offers the renowned Multilingual Language Program; we offer English, French, Thai, Mandarin, and Japanese language options to our students.

We believe that the child can be exposed to more than one language from an early age. Our Early Multilingual Language learning, therefore, takes place spontaneously in a natural environment, making it a meaningful and relevant process for all our students.
At ACACIA International Preschool, we promote a hands-on, self-paced, collaborative, joyful learning environment, where leadership, creativity, independence, and a lifelong love for learning are natured. We empower our students to explore, create, enjoy, and also to always be thoughtful, kind, and amiable to all.

About Acacia Nursery & Preschool

The goal of ACACIA International Preschool was to provide a quality nursery and multilingual preschool center with an enthusiastic and stimulating environment.

The research was carried out by the founders who combined their skills, passions, and values to create an innovative teaching approach for young learners.
Based on hands-on and play-based learning, it opens up new and unique experiences for students.
