CCLC is one of the other most talked about off-base preschool options at Yongsan, although it doesn’t seem quite as popular as CRADA. I’m not sure if it’s because there’s no Hannam bus, or just lacks CRADA’s word of mouth. Their facility is certainly top-notch though and the program seems highly organized. They’ve got a little library, cafe, and even a swimming pool. Like CRADA, this school is also geared toward Korean kids learning English. Instruction is given in English by native English speaking teachers for children age 4+ No outdoor playground.
Parent take: “My 4 yo got there in August and by November she was reading sentences. They’re very disciplined. They had piano, ballet and swimming. Loved it.”

For all you parents looking for a preschool that suits your kids, we’re hoping to add a little something to aid in your search. Parents of children who attend various preschools here in Korea have filled out a series of questions about the schools for the benefit of the rest of us. We welcome more than one voice on each school since everyone has a different experience, so please feel free to add in your two cents in the comments.
