Message from the Chairman


The company has its roots in 1986 in Singapore and in 2000, after the liberalization of the Enterprise Law, seeing the great market potential during our early visits, we decided to venture into Vietnam. Throughout the years, with the rise of the middle-class as well as the continued upward GDP growth, we have continued to see opportunities for our business growth in Vietnam.

From our first preschool, KinderWorld International Group now operates 15 campuses in Vietnam, offering through-train education from Preschool to High School, and University Foundation. We believe that education should equip our students with the essential knowledge and skills needed for a technology-driven and globalized world while preserving and nurturing the significant values and cultures of Asia. Our students’ excellent achievements reflect KinderWorld’s commitment to prepare our students for life-long learning and global citizenship.

Aside from developing the business aspect of the company, we remain steadfast in our contribution to social causes. As an education company, we understand that education has a positive impact on society and will continue to contribute through a range of charitable activities such as annual donation to Operation Smile, “Dreams to Reality” scholarships or Scholarship for Vietnamese students participating Asia-Pacific Mathematical Olympiad for Primary Schools (APMOPS), to name a few.

We are proud to announce that in November 2020, KinderWorld Vietnam JSC was awarded the Large Enterprise Winner of ASEAN Business Awards (ABA) 2020 – Skills Development, bestowed by ASEAN Business Advisory Council. This award honours the company’s significant contribution to human capital development in the country and the region.

Throughout our development journey, human capital has always been one of the core foundations of KinderWorld International Group. We continue to invest in the training and development of our people whom we believe form the heart of our organization.

We will look to expand our footprint in ASEAN, China, Australia, and Central Asia and as we do so, we will continue to innovate and embrace change to propel the Group forward in this ever evolving and competitive landscape.
