In the past, due to the crowed and poverty in Klong Toey community, the foundation was found to support parents who have to spend a lot of time for working outside in order to earn their livings. Therefore, the children were always abandoned and hanged around by themselves. Ms. Prateep Ungsongtham Hata and Ms. Mingporn Ungsongtham, who were the teachers began to take care of these children by giving them the education. Later on, the school reputation attracted a lot of children to come and join. The teachers later develop the compound to a kindergarten school and foundation.
