Exciting news for Shuangjing parents! The neighborhood has a new kindergarten. The American International Academy of Beijing (AIAB) is a bilingual international school now enrolling students. Classes will use a Montessori curriculum and are slated to begin in mid-September, and there will be an informational session this Sunday, August 12 at 9.40am.
The school will have a toddler class for children 18 months through 3 years of age, with a maximum of 16 children per class, and a preschool class for children between 3 and 6 years old, with a maximum of 25 children per class. There will also be a pre-elementary class for 5 to 6-year-olds.
AIAB will be located just across from Beijing City International School. The bilingual curriculum will alternate language days, with classes in English one day and classes in Chinese the next.
Visit AIAB’s website for information on enrollment and school details. Note that the information session this Sunday will take place at the school offices, not at the campus.
