In 2016, Suzhou Victoria Kindergarten was rated as a high-quality kindergarten. It has been awarded the municipal advanced unit of private education many times. In June 2018, it was officially authorized as an International Baccalaureate (IB) organization, becoming the first IB kindergarten in Suzhou. With the ideals “Committed to creating a multi-cultural community”, “Encouraging children to become global-minded, lifelong learners”, Suzhou Victoria Kindergarten has been striving for the healthiest, most harmonious and diversified development of children.
The kindergarden is characterized by its inquiry inspired classes from the PYP (Primary Years Program), focusing on developing well-rounded children. Each class implements a two-teacher system, in which English and Chinese are used equally throughout the day. The class is equipped with a professional Chinese teacher and an English native speaking teacher. Through IB, the Early Reading Project of Columbia University, regional games, multi-cultural activities, and creative environments, we can cultivate children’s bilingual listening and speaking comprehension abilities through pure immersion.
