About Us

ABOUT US

GET TO KNOW US

Systems Little House provides a home like, nurturing environment, for children aged 18 months to 6 years. Inspired by the children in our care and by the ‘Reggio Emilia’ childcare philosophy, we allow children to explore, imagine, create and thrive in their own space. Our programme is diverse and by using open-ended play and art experiences we enable the children to make their own choices around learning centres in and outside of their classroom.

THE TIMELINE

1994

Our school was established in Hanoi in 1994 by two educators Magdalena Urioste and Patrada Yomnak. Magdalena was the sole owner for 20 years during which time Systems Little House obtained its Education License from the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and became one of the very few 100% foreign owned and run international Kindergartens in Hanoi.

2015

After managing the school for many years and being Magdalena’s legal representative in Vietnam, Michelle Dinh-Jones took over the reigns and became the owner & director of the school.

2022

Systems Little House joined Dragonfly Education Group with the vision to build a community that truly values children, parents, and caregivers.
