Childhood is the beginning of a lifetime of learning. For parents and educators, it is important that our preparations for the 'early childhood' stage are managed appropriately and this is why Huili Nursery Nantong places such emphasis on it.
We know that this stage is critical in a child’s development, but the way in which young children learn is not quite the same as at any other stage of human life. If we do not understand children well enough and respect them, then, as the French philosopher Rousseau pointed out hundreds of years ago, "education will go astray if we have the wrong idea about them", because "some people are committed to what adults should know, but do not consider what children can learn according to their abilities".
Considering the needs of the children, developing their abilities, creating a safe environment, respecting their uniqueness, encouraging active learning and giving personalised feedback and support, are some of the "key ingredients" that we place special emphasis on in a child’s education
So how can we encourage our children's self-development in life, starting with their own abilities? On 25th February, Ms. May Xue, Deputy Head of Early Years, and Mr. Jamie Plunkett, Head of Primary, will present an authentic Huili immersion bilingual experience to nursery children.
