FFK takes its name from the founder of the Franciscan Fathers, St. Francis. Francis was born in Assisi, Italy in 1182 into a rich
family. In order to put his ideal of love into practice, he gave up everything he had to the poor and began his mission in an area
which was very troubled by wars and poverty. The Franciscan Fathers have continued his mission down through the centuries
and today they dedicate their work to alleviating the sufferings of the poor, to the missions, to the education of young people;
especially the little, and to social work. Here in Korea they have schools for the handicapped, homes for the elderly and they
also work with patients of leprosaria. Their motto is LOVE FOR ALL especially the smallest.
Located directly off of the main Hannam-dong Street our campus includes 2 buildings, spacious outdoor playground, 2 indoor
playgrounds, wading pool, and a rooftop garden. The classrooms and school are newly renovated, offering a child-centered
and inquiry-based education for toddlers through kindergarten age children of the foreign community residing in Seoul.
Our Caterpillar and Butterfly building is specifically designed for our toddler
program with spacious learning centers, napping room, an indoor
playground suitable for toddlers and a kitchen. Our main building, adjacent
to our outdoor playground, contains our school office, as well as all
pre-school through kindergarten classrooms and specialist classrooms.
