Franciscan Foreign Kindergarten (FFK)

Franciscan Foreign Kindergarten
Address: 90 Hannam-daero, Yongsan-ku, Seoul Korea

FFK takes its name from the founder of the Franciscan Fathers, St. Francis. Francis was born in Assisi, Italy in 1182 into a rich family. In order to put his ideal of love into practice, he gave up everything he had to the poor and began his mission in an area which was very troubled by wars and poverty. The Franciscan Fathers have continued his mission down through the centuries and today they dedicate their work to alleviating the sufferings of the poor, to the missions, to the education of young people; especially the little, and to social work. Here in Korea they have schools for the handicapped, homes for the elderly and they also work with patients of leprosaria. Their motto is LOVE FOR ALL especially the smallest. Located directly off of the main Hannam-dong Street our campus includes 2 buildings, 2 spacious outdoor playground, 2 indoor playgrounds, wading pool, and a rooftop garden. The classrooms and school are newly renovated, offering a child-centered and inquiry-based education for toddlers through kindergarten age children. Our Play School building is specifically designed for our toddler program with spacious learning centers, napping room and an indoor playground suitable for toddlers. Our main building, adjacent to our outdoor playground, contains our school office, as well as all preschool through kindergarten and specialist classrooms, activity room, Library and our indoor playground.
