Fortune Kindergarten Ready for a New School Year

Fortune Kindergarten Hongqiao celebrates its first 10 years by giving the whole school a well-deserved anniversary gift as it welcomes its students to a new, colorful, safer and brighter environment this September.

The general focus of all construction work this summer was on modernizing the building and improving the level of comfort and safety for all the children, teachers and parents.

All window frames throughout the building were changed and new double pane glass was installed, making the whole building more energy efficient and more comfortable in both summer and winter. This change has also helped bring more natural light into all classrooms and common areas – a welcomed change that was noticed by all children on the first day of school. 

The classroom cafeterias have also been redecorated, allowing children to really enjoy using these areas for lunchtime and snacks. The healthcare facilities have also been reconsidered, so the school nurse can now care for the children in a new, larger and more comfortable space, with a separate monitoring area for children who happen to feel uncomfortable at school.

As Shanghai springs and summers can be extremely humid, with rains often lasting for many days, a generous covered outdoor play area is prepared where the children can continue enjoying the outdoors even in rainy weather. The outdoor playground surfaces have now been covered with colorful, soft-pour rubber mulch, making all playground areas safe and fun for the children.

At the Dongfang Road campus in Pudong, the children are welcomed with a new children’s library, and plenty of new reading opportunities, while the organic garden program will now be extended to include all classes and age groups.

In Fortune Kindergarten Hongqiao, a new half day Baby Class, for children between 18 months to 2 years is opening its doors for the youngest students. This will not only be a wonderful first school experience for the kids, but also an excellent child care service for the school community.

The new school website (www.fkis.com.cn), Fortune of Learning, is now fully operational, with information about the school program, photos of activities, updates of recent events and more features.
