Our first aim is to provide quality early childhood educational services for local and expats living in Siem Reap.
We operate two daycares with distinct focus:
1st Class is a new full time nursery and day care caring for infants and toddlers in a unique multilingual (Khmer, English and some French) and multicultural environment
Chin Chok Club
Chin Chok Club is a part time daycare with French as main language for children from 1 to 3 years old. The Chin Chok Club has been functioning for 14 years.
Ms. Diane Caroen
