Philosophy & Development
Our Mission

Anchors International Education Organization aims to provide an inviting and caring environment in which each individual’s value is respected, and each student’s potential is fully developed. We are innovative and have combined the best elements of both Eastern and Western educational ideals. We value cultural diversity, and have programs that are intentionally designed to invite educational and social development. Our teaching staff possess a healthy and positive outlook that contributes to our students’ continued success.


Our philosophy is based upon the foundation of Christian beliefs. It aims to provide an inviting learning environment in which each child is encouraged to develop intellectually, socially, physically, psychologically and spiritually. Anchors has adopted the Invitational Education (IE) approach and we base our school on four operating assumptions: Respect, Trust, Optimism and Intentionality. Through the 5 Ps strategies (People, Place, Policy, Program and Process) of IE, we intentionally create an inviting environment where children are encouraged to develop their untapped potential. In these crucial four years of a child’s life, every aspect of their human development will progress through our philosophy at Anchors. Students will expand their learning abilities and thinking skills, and also develop a positive outlook on life.

Our Story

Anchors Kindergarten & International Nursery was founded on August 1st, 2000 at Fuller Gardens to provide a bilingual pre-school education to children living in the community, and to prepare them for international or local primary schools. The Constellation Cove and Fanling campuses were founded in 2008 and 2010 respectively. With the support of our student’s parents, we have grown to over 1300 students in attendance. AKIN continues to provide quality elementary bilingual education for children.
