The curriculum is designed in a child-centered approach. Classes are organized in group activities, games, tours, small projects... attracting the participation and excitement of children.

The education program on environmental protection will be implemented by GNI in many schools in Hanoi and Hoa Binh province in the coming time with the desire to spread the habit of "green living" positively to many children.
