Word from a Parent:
"Sunwaykids International Kindergarten is really a good kindergarten for kids in Tongzhou area. The things I like the most are the environment and teachers of the kindergarten. Every classroom has its own style; Linda is in K1 international class, which has a cat theme. There are five teachers in her class and all of them are so kind to my kid. Linda enjoys her life at the kindergarten every day."
– Li Ming (Chinese) father to Linda (3)
