Our international kindergarten applies a special model, combing two foreign teachers, one Chinese teacher and one child-care worker together. Chinese teachers are professional in preschool education with abundant experience. Each class contains about 20 children.

The Twinklekidz curriculum covers six domains, including aesthetics and creative expression, discovery of the world, language and literacy, motor skills development, numeracy, social and emotional development. The system consists of bilingual theme-based core courses, life skill courses, practical courses and extended courses, which is tailored for children to help them grow naturally and individually.
