We are proud to announce that Acacia Sukhumvit Kindergarten, has now obtained accreditation from AEFE (Agency for French Education Abroad).

ACACIA Sukhumvit International Nursery & Preschool offer the choice between a Bilingual English-French section and an International Section based on British Curriculum that also offers additional languages such as Mandarin or Japanese.

*Bilingual English – French Section – Our immersive, bilingual environment ensures that each child will pick up English and French spontaneously and effectively. Our unique learning facilities include dedicated studios for storytelling, visual and performing arts in both English and French.
*International British Section – While our learning goals are based on the British Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), our teaching approach is inspired by the Maria Montessori philosophy which encourages children to learn through play, inquiry, and exploration.

Acacia Sukhumvit Preschool has just received AEFE accreditation in 2023, which offers parents the opportunity to access school scholarships and guarantees our students the ability to continue their education automatically at LFIB or any other school in France.

ACACIA International Preschool Sukhumvit is much more than just a simple building It is in a unique place tailored to children from 18 months to 6 years old. It is located in a safe, green home-like nurturing, compassionate and caring environment. Our school contains a central area designated for our students, a spacious canteen, and a kitchen daily fresh meals.
Children are welcomed with joy as they enter the school by a big green garden filled with outdoor activities and facilities, such as a sand pit, sensory play area, climbing, and many rides.


ACACIA provides its students with a creative learning environment focused on play and manipulation that sparks creativity and imagination to make sure that they advance at their own pace and foster a lifelong desire to learn. The Montessori Method, which claimed that “The hands are the instruments of man’s intelligence,” served as the foundation for this educational strategy.


The ACACIA Sukhumvit International Nursery & Preschool, like its counterpart in the Sathorn district, offers the choice between a bilingual French-English section and an International – British Curriculum Section offering additional languages such as Chinese or Japanese.

The Educational Administration of ACACIA has always ensured that students in the Bilingual French-English Section receive an education by the principles, objectives, and kindergarten curriculum of the French Ministry of National Education while also taking into account the uniqueness of the British Curriculum for the International Section.

CLASSES are divided into Four Sections.

From Nursery to Year 1, our students are divided into 4 age groups:

  • Explorers section is for children from 18 months to 3 years old
  • Adventurers section is for children from 3 to 4 years old
  • Travelers section is for children from 4 to 5 years old
  • Globetrotters section is for children from 5 to 6 years old


Our programs were developed by National Education teaching practitioners for the French section and specialists in British early childhood education (Early Years Foundation Stage) for the English section.

They revolve around the following major areas of learning:
· Mobilize language in all its forms (oral and written)
· Act, express, and comprehend through physical activity
· Act, express oneself and understand through artistic activities
· Get your hands on the first mathematical tools
· Explore the world


The development of multilingualism in the French, English, and Thai languages is the primary goal of our bilingual section’s educational initiative.
This prompted us to establish the following guidelines:

1. Alternating time slots in French, English, and Thai
Our students, across all sections, switch daily between learning French with a French-speaking teacher, English with an English-speaking teacher, and Thai with a Thai teacher.

2. One Instructor, one language
Each child has two teachers who work in pairs, a French-speaking teacher and a native English-speaking teacher, so that a child associates a language distinct to each adult around him and that the acquisition of languages is thus done in tandem and without confusion. Each week, a third Thai teacher participates in the class.

3. Themes are addressed in parallel in the three languages.

Each month, the same theme (broken down into weekly sub-themes) is covered in French, English, and Thai for each of the four divisions. As a result, the child’s vocabulary in all three languages can grow and he can gradually learn about many parts of the world around him.

All students in the International Section are taught in English according to a program based on the British curriculum, more specifically on the recommendations of the British framework for Early Childhood (the Early Years Foundation Stage, or EYFS). Our UK Curriculum is combined with a Montessori philosophy that promotes play-based learning, which delivers better outcomes for your children. As a result, your children will gain knowledge and experience from Montessori educational resources while also having the chance to learn Chinese or Japanese as a Third Language each afternoon, expanding their horizons and preparing them to become the next generation of multilingual future leaders.

Our programs combine the objectives of the British Early Years Foundation and the great precepts of the Montessori method.

Our methodology, with its roots in the Montessori Philosophy in the Early Years, is based on a unique educational offer underpinned by a strong focus on developing independence that focuses on the ability and uniqueness of each student to choose their pathway with confidence.
The areas that we develop during this phase include:
Building solid foundations in phonics and fine motor skills, taking the first steps towards reading and writing.
Developing basic social and emotional skills, which will be essential for their overall development.
English immersion from an early age is reflected in greater fluency in literacy in Year 1.
Personalized attention in multilevel classes by qualified teachers who give specific work to each student
Educational resources cover different fundamental areas of children’s education.
