About Silk

Laguna Phuket Kindergarten was set up in 1992 to serve the early learner needs of our community. It has since been recognized as one of the best early learning institutions in Thailand.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.


School Life

We believe enrichment lessons will enhance the overall learning journey of our students. Children will develop a wider range of skills through lessons in music, sports, computer literacy, and ecology and the environment, as well as engage in activities like storytelling, cooking and food preparation, and yoga and mindfulness.

Hello, I am Teacher Eyes, a class teacher at the Nursery level.

SILK's teaching and learning activities are full of fun.

In addition to teaching according to the curriculum, our students also have the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom at various locations in Laguna, whether it is a common area or a facility in the hotel. The volunteers from hotels have rotated to teach and do activities with students which enhance more skills and experience than other schools. Everyone can come and join as a volunteer at SILK. You are invited.
