Word from a Parent:
"On Yuhan’s first day at PKU College, I remember the school bus arriving at 7.30am. She was nervous, but the fear quickly turned to joy because the teacher played with her all day. She didn’t cry because she realized there was nothing to worry about. Since then, I’ve seen Yuhan’s happy, smiling face every day. She sometimes tells me: “Mama, I love going to school,” “I like my teacher,” “Teacher gave me a sticker today and told me I did well at school,” and so on. As a parent, I appreciate the great love, patience, encouragement, and sense of responsibility that Yuhan’s teachers have shown towards her. I can follow her growth and daily life through the class blog, and have witnessed with pride her developing independence and ability to take care of herself"
– Mrs. Wang (China), mother of Yuhan Du (age 4)
