Getting an education at the Bamboo Center

Parents always hope to find a good school for their children in order to improve their chances in life.

On the corner of Streets 71 and 392 in Boeung Keng Kong, there is a building decorated with white and green, surrounded by a smattering of small plants. That building is Bamboo Education Center.

Immediately inside is a playground with a sandbox, garden, swimming pool and toys.

Classrooms contain air conditioners and study materials for the students. Tables and chairs are decorated with a rich mix of colours and the enviroment of the rooms makes kids feel comfortable to study.

Besides classrooms and playround for the kids, the Bamboo Education Center has also music, drawing and sleeping rooms.

Almost everywhere in the center the special floor protects people from injuring when falling down. Everyone is also monitored with security cameras.

“The reason why I opened Bamboo was because of my love for my children as well as other kids,” Bamboo Education Center principal Say Bandith says.

“Another reason is my dream to strengthen and improve the education standards in Cambodia. I always believed that a way to successfully develop a country is through education.”

He also added that the Bamboo Education Center is available for kids from two to 12 years old and they can study with the Montessori system. They can access classes about practical life, language, arts, mathematics, culture and science.

Bamboo also offers enrichment courses such as drawing, swimming, music, gardening, and Khmer, French and Mandarin languages.

At a cost of $150 a month, your children can get a good-level education with foreign teachers from England, France and Spain who have at least five years of experince.

If you are thinking about enrolling your children in this education center, you can visit the Bamboo website or the Bamboo office.
