Mustard Seed Christian Preschool
This is a Christian preschool that has been around on USAG Yongsan since 1976. They are located at the Seoul International Baptist Church, about a five minute walk from base (from the Kimchi Pot Gate 21). A bus will come to Yongsan to pick up the kids, or you can walk there or drop your kids at the door by car. The lessons are taught in English and DoD and SIBC families will be given priority in enrollment.
“Mustard Seed Christian Preschool is a Christian educational program based on teachings from the Bible and learning activities designed to promote spiritual, social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.”
Parent take: My kid went to the Mustard Seed and loved it. His teachers were wonderful, creative, and caring and he learned so much in the year he was there. He made great little friends there and I loved that he was amongst such a diverse group of kids. We’ll miss it when he goes off to kindergarten next year. The 1/2 day schedule was a good fit…and so was the price
