Jiade combines Chinese culture with an international blend of English classes by its International faculty team. The children work individually or together in small groups with a variety of educational materials in close co-operation with teachers, each following an individualized learning program within the Montessori curriculum. The classrooms are neatly organized engaging children’s curiosity and intellectual creativity in self-directed work. The calm but energetic ambience of the classroom creates a natural environment conducive to encouraging children to learn. Jiade provides the opportunity, facilities, materials and ethos for children to become independent, self-directed, motivated, analytical and confident learners.

Word from a Parent:
Jiade have been a great help to us since my son started school there in September at 2 and a half years of age. He has progressed quickly, and developed a knowledge of how to learn and play logically and behave himself properly. He understands things that we did not teach him. We are very thankful that Jiade has offered our son a bright new environment and a marvelous and committed staff. I believe my son will progress step by step in future with Jiade’s help. We will definitely continue to send him there.
