After graduating from Fudan University law school and completing a degree in Chinese language and literature at East China Normal University, Yuki Gong became involved in early childhood education. With six years in public kindergarten, five years in bilingual nursery and nine years in international schools, she gathered a wealth of experience through twenty years’ teaching practice, as well as a solid knowledge of Eastern and Western education philosophies. She uses her expertise to lead the teaching practice at Huili Nursery Shanghai, aiming to provide personalised and holistic education for every pupil.
Yuki’s experience in leadership has resulted in the ability to create a safe, fun and enabling learning environment where the awareness of responsibility and autonomy is stimulated among teachers and pupils. She believes that building mutual trust and respect between pupils, parents and colleagues is at the heart of an inspiring early childhood provision. Only by promoting playing and exploring, active learning, creativity and critical thinking can we support our children to grow up to become effective learners.
