2023年12月8日，由BIEA英国国际教育协会官方发起的园长交流互助研学活动（EYFS study practicum）在厦门华锐莱普顿幼儿园展开。
On December 8, 2023, the EYFS study practicum by BIEA was officially launched at Chiway Repton Kindergarten Xiamen.
Chiway Repton Kindergarten Xiamen is located on the shores of the beautiful Maluan Bay in Jimei District, Xiamen City. It was co-founded by Zhongrui Education Group, Hongxin Entrepreneurship Factory, Anta Investment and Xtep Investment. It is a strong collaboration with the famous British school Repton School, a high-end international school with a fifteen-year consistent education system.
Representatives of BIEA led a group of approximately 20 EYFS principals and kindergarten teaching and research staff to visit our school, and conducted cordial and friendly in-depth exchanges with the kindergarten department of our school, which class observations and principal discussions.
Principal Sandy briefly introduced the development of the school to the visiting principals, shared how the kindergarten curriculum has developed in the three years since the school was founded, and detailed how it has been constantly adjusted towards the innovative direction of the EYFS curriculum, in alignment with the current development of the children. Many real cases inspired the principals to think about sustainability. After listening to the introduction of our kindergarten, Teacher Sherry from the Marketing and Admissions Department led a tour of the kindergarten, providing a detailed introduction to the displays around the kindergarten and elaborating how it they are representative of the curriculum features, key facilities and special activity areas. The 20 principals shared their opinions on the history and characteristics of our school, the teaching environment, and the current status of children’s growth and development.
BIEA experts Tessa and Jenny organized a principal growth forum to conduct special exchanges and discussions on the theme of “How to support children’s development through high-quality teacher-child interaction.”
