HOA DONG NURSERY SCHOOL
Hoa Dong Nursery School, Krong Pak, Vietnam
In October 2012; Hoa Dong Nursery School opened its doors, providing over 200 children with access to nursery school education and secure day care. The school has 5 classrooms, an admin block and a kitchen which is used to prepare and serve lunch every day. This school will become the second home for many generations of children from Hoa Dong community for years to come.
Vietnamese children must attend nursery school in order to meet national standards for entry into primary school. Unfortunately, the Vietnamese government is restricted economically to provide enough nursery schools in rural, farming communities. For the local community and their future generations of children building the Hoa Dong Nursery school will have a great impact on their lives. Not only providing the children with a vital start in their academic lives the nursery school actively supports the farming community by providing safe and reliable day care. This allows mothers and fathers to have time to concentrate work on their farms and not worry about the whereabouts, safety and the future of their children. At the school 11 teachers teach the children to speak the official Vietnamese language through activities, games, music and play.
Hoa Dong commune is one of 15 villages located in Krong Pak district covering an area of 623 sq kms (387 sq miles). Income is generated from small holding farms with the principal crop being coffee along with a large variety of fruits and vegetables, honey, pepper and often livestock.
