Muffy’s International Kindergarten’s story began in 2004 as “Muffy’s Education”, a small English immersion school in Beijing. Muffy’s founder envisioned a school that felt like a family, one that provided quality education grounded in care for children and respect for parents. Ten years later, Muffy’s has grown to include over 700 students and we still feel like family. Using Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory as the backbone of their curriculum, their education philosophy has evolved to emphasize social, cognitive, and character development alongside the goal of language acquisition and proficiency.
