Yew Wah International Education Kindergarten (YWIEK) is committed to fostering the healthy and balanced growth as well as an all-round development of each child in laying the foundation for lifelong learning and continuous development through learning goals and approaches tailored for the 21st century.
Yew Wah currently operates kindergartens in the Chinese cities of Shanghai, Chongqing, Rizhao and Qingdao catering for Chinese and expatriate children. Based on the high standard of early childhood education experience and teaching methodology of Yew Chung Hong Kong, YWIEK integrates Chinese culture to build a systematic and professional Yew Wah Early Childhood Education curriculum which strives to create a positive, loving, enjoyable and appreciative learning environment, providing children with ideal learning and life experiences. Children are nurtured to become confident and positive global citizens with both Chinese cultural heritage and international perspectives.
YWIEK provides an open and interactive learning environment, emphasising on the building of a strong relationship between teachers and children. The close co-operation between the school and parents helps cultivate an open, inclusive, and supportive environment. The professional teaching team at Yew Wah fully grasps the educational philosophy and understands children’s learning and development goals at various stages through numerous teaching activities, games, and implementation methods. The co-operative teaching mode of Chinese and Western teachers helps foster a dynamic Chinese and English learning environment where children are engaged to appreciate different cultures.
Learning qualities refer to the attitudes, interests, and habits one exhibits in learning, which are essential for lifelong pursuit of knowledge and personal development. Some learning qualities are innate, such as curiosity and desire to explore the world, while others such as concentration, persistence, and flexibility, are acquired. At Yew Wah, we foster good learning qualities in children through conducting various activities. Putting children’s curiosity and learning initiatives in care, we help them develop a positive and focused attitude and a mindset that dares to explore, try, imagine, and create.
Having a good character lays a solid foundation in life. At YWIEK, we focus on instilling character education in a child’s day-to-day life, and nurture them into individuals who care, respect, and get along well with others, while treating people with honesty, trust, and the ability to discern right from wrong.
Globalisation leads to multiculturalism through the increase in communications and interaction amongst different countries. It is thus important for both adults and children to respect and understand cultural diversities. At Yew Wah, people from different countries work together. Children are not only given the opportunities to learn a foreign language, but more importantly, they can grow up in an environment that is understanding, inclusive and appreciative of foreign cultures whilst being deeply rooted in their own, become the driving force to achieving sustainable development in the context of globalisation.
