Windsor Bilingual Kindergarten Opens Its Doors to the Media

windsor-media-day_sWindsor Bilingual Kindergarten is unique with a curriculum that is unlike any other in the Chinese market and a dedicated team that is second to none. Like so many in the Dulwich family, their passion is education and it was decided that it was high time this message was spread far and wide.

Windsor opened its doors for the first time to the media. Thirteen journalists from various media outlets were invited to the Media Day of Windsor International Kindergarten on the 18th of May at its headquarters building in the Shunyi district of Beijing, including online giants such as Sina and Yahoo, print regulars China Daily, Parenting Science and Mum & Baby, as well as LittleStar Magazine.

The event went smoothly, with Breeze Li introducing each of the speakers in turn before allowing Wendy Weng (Curriculum Manager for Chinese content) to take the floor. What followed was a remarkable compression of a whole year’s learning into fifteen minutes of pictures and succinct commentary, following the activities of a single class throughout a full school year and imparting a sense of what Windsor is about and how we do things. This was followed by Becky Jing (Windsor’s Managing Director) who briefed the assembled journalists on Windsor’ history, as well as that of the whole Dulwich family as well as alluding to topics that would be covered later in the day. This led into a tour of the Legend Garden campus, giving the journalists the opportunity to see classes in action and interact with both the staff and children of the school. After a short break the groups reconvened for the final two presentations. The first was given by Kate Beith (Windsor Academic Director) who gave an impassioned presentation on the research and theories that underpin the Windsor play based curriculum before yielding the floor to Shirley Wan. Windsor’ Curriculum Manager then proceeded to take a minor detour from the scheduled events, involving the journalists in a minor art exercise that linked nicely into later portions of her presentation on Windsor’ rigorous training program. Before the floor was opened up to questions, Windsor was honored to give time to three parents whose children attend Windsor schools, whose glowing testimonials helped to cement what the journalists had already seen and heard throughout the day.
