We have created a child-centred and game-based learning environment that stimulates children's thinking. Our children are nurtured by both Chinese and foreign teachers. The violin programme is one of the compulsory courses in early childhood education. YWIES Yantai’s ECE Section has developed into a professional, bilingual and international kindergarten after many years.
  • YWIES Yantai’s Primary programme covers China National Curriculum and integrates with high quality education resources. Our Western and Chinese teachers work collaboratively to develop students’ mathematical and bilingual abilities with multicultural and international perspective and create a genuinely holistic bilingual learning and international environment. YWIES Yantai not only provides regular subjects as requested by Chinese government, but also provides some unique subjects that are not offered by private schools, and bilingual schools, e.g. Character Education and Performing Arts. With many years of experience in teaching, YWIES Yantai’s Primary Section is the pioneer of private schools, bilingual schools and international schools in Yantai.
