Raintree is committed to giving young learners the best start in life through the highest quality nursery classes. Our dedicated team works closely with children to build confidence, independence and a lifelong love of learning. Children’s brains develop most rapidly during the first five years of their life which is why nursery and kindergarten education is so critical to children’s long term development and success. In line with international best practice, our nursery classes are limited to a small class size of 12-15 children. Each class is led by a qualified and experienced class teacher and 2-3 assistants. This low ratio of adults/ children enables our team to build strong teacher/ child relationships and ensure that our nursery children feel valued and supported. Working closely with our nursery class teachers, our specialist teachers including Music, Language and Physical Education, provide their expert knowledge to ensure our children have access to authentic and specialist learning opportunities.
Typical Day of Our Nursery Class
Our Nursery class starts at 9:00 and finishes at 12:30 (Nursery 1) and 12:45 (Nursery 2). Children are dropped-off and collected from their classroom, providing parents with daily communication with the teaching team.

Our Nursery Curriculum
Offering one of Bangkok’s best nursery classes, the Raintree team works hard to ensure your child’s educational start is a happy, secure and engaging journey. Within an inspiring and carefully curated learning environment, we encourage young learners to gain independence, confidence and to learn to interact collaboratively with their peers and adults.
At Raintree, we believe that every child is unique, capable and eager to learn. Children are naturally curious and our teachers are trained to observe and extend each child’s learning and their creativity. Play is essential to young children’s development. It helps children learn to make decisions, manage stress and negotiate as well as follow a goal, while ignoring distractions. These concepts foster critical skills such as creativity and collaboration which are important for children in today’s rapidly changing world. Through purposeful play and open ended materials, our teachers set up a wide range of exploration activities and resources for children to investigate and learn.
Integral to our learning approach is outdoor play. Despite being located in central Bangkok and conveniently close to the commercial and residential areas of Sathorn and Silom, Raintree boast an excellent natural large green space. Outdoor play promotes physical development, allowing children the space to work on their fine and gross motor skills in an environment that challenges and inspires them. This closeness with nature further offers our children a multitude of high quality sensory experiences and the opportunity to learn about the natural environment and explore the world around them.
