Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Huili Nursery Shanghai.

Choosing early years education for your child requires trust in the nursery, faith in the shared vision of those involved and belief in the ability of the staff to deliver the highest quality of care and learning opportunities to your child. I feel certain that as you understand our philosophy and desire to immerse children in the languages of Chinese and English, promoting holistic and meaningful learning and development, you will begin a shared journey of discovery with us.

When you walk around the nursery, you will see that we have considered our vision very carefully. We have designed a setting that meets the needs of children at various ages and stages of development, creating an environment which provokes and enables learning and development. For children to be leaders in their own learning, the environment around them must be able to support them and we believe that we have created this for each unique child.

Here at Huili Nursery Shanghai, we believe that children should be allowed to be children; they have a right to sing, laugh, dance, get messy, explore, discover, create and be listened to. They should be valued, treasured and supported throughout these amazingly formative years.

Bringing like-minded practitioners together to create the most appropriate environment and culture is crucial to early years education. By environment, I don’t necessarily mean the physical environment. I refer to the ambience, atmosphere, shared vision: the feeling created that reassures you that you’re in the right place, and that you’ve done the right thing for your child. When you walk through the doors of Huili Nursery Shanghai, you will receive a welcome that recognises you and your child as members of our family; you will feel a deep sense of belonging. In the classroom, your child will feel safe and secure, surrounded by adults who understand and appreciate their duty of care to all.

I truly believe that Huili Nursery Shanghai offers the very best for young learners. Our pupils become active and invested learners, explorers, innovators and problem solvers. They develop the skills to communicate in Chinese and English. They celebrate diversity and promote equality amongst themselves. They are strong, physically developed and challenged. Their achievements are celebrated, their failures acknowledged and their courage to try again supported. They are free to be whatever and whomever they wish, in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment. They are the Huili identity: Individual, Intellectual, Independent, Inclusive and Inspired.
