Yew Wah international education services are founded upon Yew Chung Education Foundation’s experience in offering quality international education in Hong Kong and mainland China. Yew Wah has developed a unique international education curriculum for young children, we offer a rich, child-friendly, nurturing environment. One English teacher and one Chinese teacher comprise of the teaching staff our international class, which allows children to gain knowledge and experience of the different languages and cultures. We adhere to the child-centered philosophy and advocate protecting children’s rights. We focus on the holistic and harmonious development of children and nurture good learning dispositions for them.

Word from a parent:
My two little boys have experienced a big change in Yew Wah, they are lucky, having teachers who really care for them and surroundings full of love. My boys have succeeded in completing their first important life phase. It’s fantastic to see my kids with smiles on their faces every day, to see them sing and happily dance along to songs we have never heard, to hear them say some English words, to see them draw something new and creative, to see them eat some food they had never tried before, or even call me “teacher” incidentally. We are jealous but very pleased. I want to thank the teachers who give all their love and care to my kids.
