It is our privilege to be involved in the education of children who will be adult citizens of the new China in a few short years from now. The skills and knowledge that they will need to face an ever-changing world and to thrive in an age of unprecedented invention and innovation will be different to those that have been applicable to past generations. Familiarity with new forms of technology will be essential. The ability to communicate using techniques and platforms that may not even be invented yet will also be important for young citizens of the modern age.
Yet fundamental human values and interactional skills will always be just as important. To create good citizens for a modern, forward thinking society is our basic concern. In doing this we aim to develop in children a profound sense of respect for social harmony and the world around them. Being able to interact with people from all over the world and to respect the cultures of others are vital parts of this preparation. In this context, learning English is seen as an important pathway to interaction with people from other cultures.
Physical development, creative awareness, the acquisition of positive values, sound academic preparation and the development of social skills are all essential ingredients in the educational processes at work in 123 kindergartens. Our partnership with families cements the bond between the child, the parents and the kindergarten. This important nexus underpins everything we aim to do and is directed to creating the best possible educational experience for all the children in our kindergartens.
We welcome you and your children to embark on an exciting educational journey with the 123 Education Group and we look forward to working together for the benefit of your children.
