2u9a1417The First Day of School on 31 August was one of the happiest days for all the children, parents and teachers at Angels International Bilingual Kindergarten (Angels Kindergarten), as the whole school officially moved into its brand new campus, which is one of the largest and most beautiful kindergarten campuses in Shanghai.

4e589afe69cacThere are 21 classrooms at this new campus, and each has its own unique design. The school collaborated with 21 interior designers, so each classroom is very different from the other. Each floor of the school has also been decorated with different themes, such as Animals, Occupations, Space and Famous World landmarks. Even the school staircases have been decorated in colorful and engaging designs such as Ocean, Seasons and Transportation.

The campus also boasts an amazing list of other facilities, such as an outdoor playground, indoor gym, dance studio, Chinese tea ceremony classroom, auditorium, library, professional photography studio, art studio, restaurant and outdoor rollerblading park. In the near future, Angels International Bilingual Kindergarten willhave their own ice rink built on campus later this year, when children can learn to ice-skate and play ice hockey.

The large size of this campus allows the school to accommodate tailor-made areas for a great variety of extracurricular activities on offer, such as rollerblading, drums and percussion, drama, music, martial arts, host training, hip-hop dancing, gardening, etc. These activities are not only for the students, but also their families and the wider community. Having a large space to educate children provides a greater opportunity for the children to express themselves and learn through practical life experiences in a hands-on manner.

3e589afe69cacAngels Kindergarten is committed to giving the children an unparalleled education that borrows from the strengths of various schools of early-childhood philosophy in a multicultural, international setting that fosters harmony, optimism and good citizenship. The English curriculum has been handpicked and includes membership to the International Primary School Early Years Program. Phonics is taught using the ‘Letterland’, and ‘Fix-it Phonics’ syllabus. Chinese curriculum is designed from the Nanjing Normal University and Taiwan Hsin-yih publishing house, a joint publication of comprehensive early-childhood activities curriculum.

For music, Angels will be working with musicians from the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra and the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, and for drama the school is cooperating with highly influential, award-winning US-born Taiwan-based playwright and theatre director Stan Lai.

“Our main goal is to provide an unparalleled level of education, developing prestigious associations with world leading establishments to ensure our students are able to enroll in the best primary schools in Shanghai and later in life the best colleges and universities in the world,” said Principal Yoku Su. “Here at Angels International Bilingual Kindergarten, we prepare every child for success in the 21st century. Under the professional guidance of qualified, passionate and loving teachers, our students grow up with good virtues and character. They perfect their language skills in both English and Chinese, acquire physical health and develop their talents in music and art. Our little angels learn the importance of honesty, kindness and respect. They also learn to face the world with confidence, a sense of responsibility and a caring heart.”

The new campus can accommodate up to 400 students, and currently there are over 300 students representing 20 different nationalities.
