6. English teaching
Teaching English in early years is the outstanding feature of Fuzhou Javen Kindergarten. We create an environment in which English is used for meaning making,
with the 21st century world class physical, and digital audio-visual teaching support. Children spend a half day in learning Chinese - their mother tongue and the other half day in English as a foreign language.
When children graduate from our kindergarten, they are usually able to talk with others about their daily activities not only in Chinese but also in English.
Our mission is to give every child every opportunity to fully develop his/her potentials and to offer him/her every opportunity of success in early childhood schooling.
