Beijing City International School (BCIS) announced its plan to build an innovative early childhood center that will not only bring innovative and top-tier education to its students, but do so in a facility that meets the highest standards of environmental friendliness. The Yue Cheng Education Board, which runs BCIS, says the center will be not only a model of modern education, but of design and sustainability, as the center will be gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certified. The center is slated to open in August of 2014 west of BCIS near the Shuangjing bridge.
Though the Yue Cheng board announced these plans last year, more of these details have not been made widely public until now. In order to ensure that the early childhood center will meet the highest standards of education, the Yue Cheng Research Institute will invite international early childhood education experts to participate in their research. The school will also maintain the same principles of innovative education, sustainable growth, and bridging the gap between education philosophies.
