About: Childhood is the most critical time of development in a person’s life and I wanted my child to have a nurturing experience that would shape her into a person with a positive perspective and that would equip her with the wisdom to be successful in whatever she pursued in life.
While living in Beijing, I happened to enroll my daughter in a school that followed the Montessori pedagogy. It was a wonderful learning environment for her. Young children were respected. Teachers acted as guides who assisted them to become independent, capable and confident individuals. I saw my daughter’s personality blossom. We spoke English at home and at school she learned Mandarin in just a few months. I came to appreciate first hand the enormous potential of the young child to learn by herself, from her surroundings and to acquire languages in this sensitive period for development.
Upon returning to Bangkok in early 2010, I realized that a comparable program was not available locally. I also wanted my daughter to continue learning Mandarin and Thai. As a result, with the support of my mother Khun Tamon Jiratanan and late father Khun Virakiert Jiratanan, we established MABIS.
We started in 2010 as a nursery school. The following year the Thai Ministry of Education licensed us to operate as an International School. In 2013 we commenced the first Montessori Elementary program in Bangkok.
