We believe "The Child Comes First"
KIDS Campus aims to ensure the time children spend with us will be happy, successful and rewarding for both parents and children. We believe this can best be achieved via co-operation of parents and teachers working together for the benefit of your child.
KIDS Campus believes “language”, whether mother tongue or foreign, is a tool for communication. Communication is necessary for people to create social lives, express wishes, emotions and thoughts. People face “obstacles” when dealing with cultures and language. Through interaction with people, “obstacles” become doorway to eye-opening experiences in differences and similarities in intercultural contact and international understanding.
Child Development is recognized as a complex area requiring attention to individual needs. These needs are – knowledge , attitude , sense of value , and skills. These needs differ according to the age of the child. KIDS Campus places great importance on “language education” and child development – a combination of mother tongue, foreign language, and human development, to help children learn a richness of individual self-expression. This is the KIDS Campus vision.
In the future, when your child leaves their nest and flies out into the world, they will have pride in themselves. They will also accept others as they are, and be accepted by others as they are. This is our lifework – to help your child build their very own brighter tomorrow.

Mother and Child Overseas Preschool Program.
To help provide motivation for children to keep learning English and challenging new ideas about the way in which they use language, KIDS Campus has developed the Mother and Child Overseas Preschool Program.

Children who participate in the program have the opportunity to:
- Naturally use language input gained at KIDS Campus.
- Learn new language native English speaking children their own age use in daily situations.
- Meet and make friends with native English speaking teachers and children.
- Learn about the culture of the language through natural daily situations.
Parents who participate in the Mother and Child Overseas Preschool Program have the opportunity to view firsthand how their child adapts to the Preschool classroom, and how their child interacts with and makes friends with native English speaking children.
