Kensington International Kindergarten, Bangkok has been named the best international nursery of 2019 by the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA).

The NDNA is a well-regarded and influential UK charity that aims to enhance the development and education of children in their early years, through the provision of support services to members. Primarily covering England, Scotland and Wales – the NDNA also has an international branch with members from across Europe, Asia and the UAE. It was these international members who competed for the International Nursery of the Year.

Located in the Talingchan district of Bangkok, Kensington International Kindergarten offers  a very British early years education to students aged six months through to six years. Teaching follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and the UK National Curriculum, and the timetable includes specialist lessons in PE, swimming and Thai.

Opened in 2012, Kensington has attracted global attention for its Learner-Centric Ecosystem and free-form architecture, and its campus has been designed to break free from “what a school should look like” to promote children’s curiosity and creativity.

Kensington's headteacher Beverley Petch joined colleagues Nitiphan Phanwiroj and Varaporn Kanchanawat to collect the award, which was presented by BBC Broadcaster Katie Thistleton at an awards evening in the UK. 

Kensington is also accredited through the NDNA’s Quality Counts scheme and has been awarded the highest Platinum level.

Purnima Tanuku, chief executive of NDNA, said: 

“Congratulations to Kensington International Kindergarten in Bangkok for being a shining example for the early years sector."

The runner-up for best international nursery was IDEA Early Learning Centre in Dubai, UAE.
