Kindergarten 1 and 2 (K1 and K2) caters for children who are one to two years of age.
The small class sizes allow teachers to tend to each student's situations and needs to make the transition to school easier for the child.
Each class is co-taught by one English-speaking and one Chinese-speaking teacher, offering a programme where children can interact naturally in a bilingual environment. Teaching is also conducted on an individual basis, in accordance with the needs and developmental level of each child.
YCIS Shanghai believes that parents and families are central to the development of the child. Teachers are here to work alongside parents to provide educational support, therefore the school offers flexible classroom times to ensure children get both family time and school time.
