Community Light International Preschools

Siem Reap Province, Cambodia

Overview

Each class has one teacher and one teacher's assistant. With a rapidly growing population and parents seeking seasonal employment in nearby Thailand, young children are often left in the care of grandparents or other family members; these children are particularly vulnerable to human trafficking. Creating a safe, stimulating learning environment in preschools helps bring stability to families and communities. 

Part of the work of these preschools is to connect with students' families to promote the importance of childhood development and education. The curriculum includes an English-language section, which parents feel is highly beneficial. 

Siem Reap Province

Siem Reap province, located in Northwestern Cambodia, is one of the countries' poorest regions. The town of Siem Reap is a resort town due to its being the gateway to the ruins of Angkor, the seat of the Khmer kingdom from the 9th–15th centuries. Angkor’s vast complex of intricate stone buildings includes preserved Angkor Wat, the main temple, which is pictured on Cambodia’s flag. Giant, mysterious faces are carved into the Bayon Temple at Angkor Thom.

Phnom Penh City

Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s busy capital, sits at the junction of the Mekong and Tonlé Sap rivers. It was a hub for both the Khmer Empire and French colonialists. On its walkable riverfront, lined with parks, restaurants and bars, are the ornate Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda and the National Museum, displaying artifacts from around the country. At the city’s heart is the massive, art deco Central Market.
