Learning through Play
3 Lotus Road, APSC Compound, 36 Thao Dien Street District
Dynotots is a small community-based Not-for-Profit preschool that
offers a number of learning programmes for children aged between
one (1) and five (5) years of age. It is located in a converted
villa with leafy and peaceful surrounds in the APSC Residential
Compound in An Phu, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
In 1995 a small group of BP Exploration and Operations families
received company funds to start up a playgroup for their children.
Word spread quickly and soon families outside the BP group were
asking for space in the programs. Dynotots has grown and matured
with each year and the passion and dedication shared among all those
involved in the Dynotots community persists. To this day BP Exploration
and Operations continues to support Dynotots.
Since the school s beginnings, Head Teacher Emily Huckson, a certified
teacher from Canada, has been the inspiration behind the school
s philosophy and resulting success.
Dynotots is a safe haven where young children can feel at home,
where they are encouraged to learn through play and foster emotional
intelligence the foundation on which the Dynotots concept developed
The Dynotots team believes that every child should be treated as
an individual, in a small and nurturing environment. This, in turn,
provides each child with the opportunity to develop self-confidence
and respect for one another. Ultimately, the Dynotots program equips
children with social and life skills that will prepare them for
the big world .
In keeping with its community spirit, Dynotots supports local orphanages
through donations from the community of cash and living essentials.
The school s administration and policies are managed by a Management
Board of dedicated parents who volunteer their time for the positive
growth and future development of the school.
