Pattaya is a great place to bring up young children but naturally, their education and their early learning is important. Luckily, Pattaya has some excellent pre-school and kindergartens where children can learn and play. In this article we look at the 6 of the most popular kindergartens in the area so it may give you some ideas about where you can send your young ones now or in the future.
Hastin Kindergarten is one of the best known kindergartens in Pattaya and is located on Soi Siam Country Club. The school places great emphasis on not only learning but also the personal development of your child – something that is equally as important at such a young age. Children between the age of 2 and 6 are welcomed and will be assessed on their level two months prior to the school year beginning. This means that they can be put in the most appropriate class for their level of development.
Private School of Pattaya – BJP Elite Academy
BJP Elite Academy offers lessons in both French and English and was established back in 2011. The school is hugely popular especially amongst the French speaking community with both native French and English teachers working at the school. The standard of teaching is very high and a number of activities are arranged for the children to help with their development. This without doubt the best French-speaking kindergarten in the area.
Phoenix Wittaya Kindergarten is another school that has forged an excellent reputation for their standard of teaching with youngsters. They offer classes in both Thai and English and are well known for having excellent resources and teaching facilities at their complex on the Sukhumvit Road to the south of Pattaya. Once again, the school focuses on both education and personal development and this is something that the children appear to thrive on.
This modern facility is located to the north of Pattaya on the Sukhumvit Road. Lessons are taught in both Thai and English with perhaps more focus placed on learning. The classes tend to be quite large which although means that children may not get the personal attention they have plenty of peers who they can mix with. Many westerners send their children to this pre-school.

Tara Pattana Kindergarten
Tara Pattana Kindergarten welcomes students from all around the world and is located on Pattanakarn Road in East Pattaya. Instead of referring to themselves as a kindergarten they prefer to use the term ‘playgroup’ – a name commonly used in the UK. As the name would suggest, the main goal is play, fun and personal development with structured education, although in place, taking something of a backseat until later years.
