Ying Hua Bilingual Nursery
Welcome to our school’s website. We hope that here you will find the information you are looking for in seeking the best education provision for your child.
Ying Hua Bilingual Nursery School is a Montessori-based school which offers an innovative model of education aimed at preparing our children for a future in the global world. The model is based on over fifty years of research and development in bilingualism and immersion bilingual education. Our provision not only draws on what we know from best practice in bilingual immersion education in countries where this has been tried and tested for over fifty years, but also from best practice in early years education in this country. It is a unique blend of Chinese and British cultures and values, reflecting the cultural heritages of the languages of the school, and promoting an ethos of hard work, resilience, and respect.
Our approach to education aims to establish a firm foundation in bilingual development in English and Mandarin. Our curriculum aims not only to provide an academically rigorous learning experience, but also to meet the needs of the whole child, to develop their strengths and potential, and to foster a love of learning from an early age. From this early bilingual foundation, children will gain a head start in developing an internationally minded outlook, a flexible mind and approach to life that will better prepare them to meet the challenges and demands of a fast-changing and increasingly global world.
We take pride in being the few nursery schools in this country to spearhead a truly bilingual education provision that is long overdue. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and welcome requests for further information.
