Our youngest Wellingtonians are encouraged to develop their own individual learning skills in stimulating, colourful and child-friendly surroundings.
At Wellington College International Hangzhou, Pre-Prep begins at Key Stage One (Years 1 and 2). For Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception age children, we recommend that parents enrol their children in Huili Nursery Hangzhou.
At Huili Nursery Hangzhou, the children follow the English Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum along with the Chinese guidelines for Early Years. This supportive, caring and research-based bilingual environment provides children with the perfect foundation for moving into Key Stage One. For more information, please refer to the Huili Nursery Hangzhou website. Click here
The transition from Early Years to Key Stage One sees the style of learning develop to more formal lessons where they follow the English National Curriculum as a basis for the core subjects, and the International Primary Curriculum for cross curricular topic work.
All Pre-Prep children are taught for the majority of the day by a classroom teacher who, as well as teaching many of the principal subjects, will provide the excellent pastoral care for which all Wellington schools are justifiably renowned. Specialist teachers lead Mandarin, Music and Swimming lessons across the Pre-Prep. From Year One onwards they also have PE and ICT specialist teachers.
