Bluebird: A leading British preschool specialising in early childhood education in Cambodia

Established in 2015, Bluebird British International Preschool has proudly introduced a British education system in Cambodia and fully complies with all the major British preschool standards. We meet the requirements in our curriculum delivery, building and classroom design, equipment and study materials, child safeguarding and welfare, teacher quality, and student’s assessment.

Early Years Foundation Stage is the national curriculum of the United Kingdom for 0-5 year old children and popularly used by international early childhood practitioners in many countries around the world.

At Bluebird, children can access high-quality education and care within the best learning environment as is found in England. They not only learn how to speak, read and write English correctly, but they also learn social skills, moral values, mathematics, self-confidence, health and self-care, physical education, arts, science, technology, critical thinking and creativity. We give every child a solid foundation and the fundamental skills they need for being successful in their future education and career.

Samleang Seila, Bluebird Board of Directors President and a child development specialist, said: “A real quality preschool is a setting that is very well aware of child development matters and their very individual needs and a setting that makes it a priority to respond to those needs.” He adds that maintaining positive relationships between educators and children together with a welcoming and enabling environment is key to effective child learning and development.

Violet Oliver, Bluebird Academic Manager, commented, “We are the only school providing plenty of extracurricular activities to our children because we want to give them all the best opportunities to use their great potential.” Violet added that “children like to learn through play and we’ve included a wide array of structured play activities and essential equipment to help children progress across all areas of the curriculum.”

Dr Evelyn Dykes, Bluebird Health Advisor and retired UK Paediatric Surgeon, said, “Children learn well only when they are kept healthy, so the Bluebird approach includes providing health advice and first aid training to parents to ensure their child’s welfare and stable health. Bluebird school meals also offer an appropriate, healthy and balanced diet for the children as a healthy brain requires a healthy body.”

In just a short time, Bluebird has become a remarkable success as evident by parents’ recognition and excellent academic achievements of our students. Soon, we will launch our online database system for parents to have unprecedented access to useful learning resources and updates about their child’s learning progress.

Eang Sengeav, Bluebird CEO, revealed that Bluebird has allied with other international educational child care and development institutions to ensure its service and education quality in Cambodia can match that in other countries. He said that “as a school, we’re committed to becoming a very academic yet happy place for young learners.”

Bluebird is now registering new students for Academic Year 2016-2017. We are happy to show any interested parents around our school so they can see our excellent facilities and meet our team before registration.
