Happy valley kindergarten

Our school is at the new area of Hanoi, so it's quite, green, less polluted, but still convenient to visit the city at your free time. The big mall is close, BRT bus is 1 km nearby, 6km to the Old quarter. At weekend, you can go to Sapa, Halong bay, Ninh Bình. If you can stay 1 month with us, we can buy a tour to Halong bay or Sapa for you as a reward.

We are a young team who has passion about young education. We creat a comfortable environment for everyone, where they find themselves be treated as a member of a big Family

I really enjoyed working with the children, they were so sweet and welcomed me with open arms. But I have to say there is room for improvement. When I first arrived I was only shown the facilities but I wasn’t really educated on the rules, schedules and basically anything essential to know. I would have wished for a better onboarding. As I arrived on a Friday, I spent the weekend all by myself, not knowing what was going on. Other than that I had a good time but I would also recommend doing this as a pair as it can get quite boring there, there‘s not much to do around.

I had a wonderful time at Happy Valley Kindergarten. I loved living with a local family and felt very welcomed in the area. The kindergarten was really lovely and the kids were super cute! I would recommend the experience however there could be some small improvements, such as more guidance for the lessons.

I had such a good time at Happy Valley Academy! I taught English for two weeks in July 2023 with my friend. I taught English in the baby class, which basically consisted in singing nursery rhymes, telling stories, teaching vocabulary with flashcards and toys and a bit of dancing. I also joined the older-kid class with my friend and we carried on some other activities such as worksheets, arts and crafts.
We were provided with a private room and bathroom.
Teachers were very nice and supportive and even helped us to plan day trips around Vietnam.
I definitely recommend this experience!

It's our luck to have Irene staying with us 2 weeks and teaching English for our children in kindergarten. She is very creative, enthusiastic and caring. Our toddler class with 1-2 years old children always the most difficult task in our school, as they are very little and shy. But Irene attracted them by lots of fun songs, dance, make them laugh and learn in natural way. She is very nice and want to learn about Vietnam culture by exploring everything in the city in her free time and talking with our staffs - local people, which I really appreciate. I high recommended her to any project related to children and education. I hope to welcome Irene back at anytime.

This is a very short space to describe how wonderful this place is. It was my first volunteer experience and Duyen, Anh and all the teachers made me feel at home. They helped us with everything we needed. I was able to create a bond with the students and teachers and this is what I expected. It was a challenge for me as it was the first time I taught toddlers as I teach in a Primary School but they helped me with everything. The room where we slept was good enough for our stay and it has an air conditioner. The chef prepared delicious meals for us and the staff were very friendly and flexible

Cris and her friend stayed with us 2 weeks and she is one of the best volunteers we have ever had. She is full of energy, take care our kids, take them lesson in a creative and fun way. The kids learn a lot from her and everyone in our kindergarten love her. She is flexible and willing to help at anything and anytime. She and her friend are tiny, organized, keep our accommodation clean during their staying. I high recommended Cris to any host who is lucky to receive her application. We welcome you back if you come back Vietnam, Cris!
