Recognized as a model kindergarten by the Chaoyang Ministry of Education, The Family Learning House is a group of virtues-based, bilingual preschools dedicated to acquiring knowledge and good character for the purpose of serving humanity. In addition to its “Day By Day Learning” character education program, which was developed by The Family Learning House Education Group, the schools aim to provide a stimulating Montessori, English, and Chinese integrated curricula within a nurturing and uplifting physical environment. The children’s creative capacities are inspired and developed through participative art and music programs, while they also learn to become global citizens by studying a different country and culture each month. Students also engage in educational outings relevant to their learning and meaningful community service projects.
