As a top notch educational institute in Zhuhai, YungWing International Kindergarten is a pioneer leader in innovative early education. Their combination of HighScope Early Education Curriculum and all-around exploration-based learning approach sets a high standard in early education, not only in Zhuhai, but all regions in the southern provinces in china.

As a partner school in teacher placement for USJ’s PGDE program, Escola de Santa Teresa (EST) is located near USJ’s new green campus. The strategic and geographical affiliation between EST and USJ encourages academic cooperation between the two institutes. Under the liaison of Prof. Samuel Kio, the group of delegations from EST visited YungWing on the 3rd of July. The visitors were introduced to YungWing’s outstanding physical facilities first, which include science rooms, musical rooms, a cooking room and a pottery room, etc. A brief observation of various classes followed. Finally, teachers from both schools engaged in a constructive exchange on perspectives of early education and curriculum designs. The principals from both schools exchanged souvenirs that concludes the fruitful visit.

In the spirit of educational collaborations between USJ and its partner schools, more academic exchanges will be promoted and arranged in the future to bring together ideas and resources that can be shared and explored.
