Rainey Kindergarten Hangzhou

In September, 2019, we were delighted to announce the formal opening of Rainey Kindergarten Hangzhou. We seek to offer a bilingual curriculum in Mandarin and in English for pupils aged 3-5 years.

 

Our state of the art building is the only affiliated Rainey Endowed School-located in Hangzhou, in Zhejiang province.

 

We offer an environment which provides a happy and fun-based approach to learning. Our focus is student-centred, where children learn how to communicate, to listen, work independently and collaboratively to problem solve and to develop respect, responsibility and resilience. The kindergarten has received excellent support from Susan Campbell (consultant).  Castledawson Primary School will be working with Rainey Endowed when developing the primary schools.

 

We recognise that all children learn differently, progress at different levels and our staff are dedicated to supporting the children through the learning process. We place a great emphasis on the three-way partnership of parent-pupil-school and we go the extra mile to support your child.

 

Our state of the art facilities are located at: No 666, Jingxing Rd, Yuhang District, Hangzhou.

 

We have an outdoor learning garden, excellent teaching and learning facilities, dedicated staff and a passionate leader, Mrs Xinxin Ding, to ensure that our pupils and your children take the first steps in developing as successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

 

Please contact Mrs Ding to arrange a tour. We look forward to meeting and working with you and your child.

Open Day April 2021

On 18th April 21, Rainey Kindergarten (RKH) enjoyed an extremely successful official brand launch in Hangzhou, China. The Vice-Consul-General for Northern Ireland from Shanghai gave a virtual speech and another member of the Consulate attended to join in the celebration of this event. It was enjoyed by many local parents and prospective parents and represented a celebration of the success of Rainey Kindergarten up to this point as well as looking towards future successes. The images below show some picture of the event and give an insight into some new developments in the Kindergarten. Congratulations to all the staff at RKH for the hard work which went into making this event such a success.

Autumn Trip 2020

The children of Rainey Kindergarten Hangzhou really enjoyed their trip to a local museum dedicated to the Liangzhu Culture (the last Neolithic jade culture in the Yangtze River Delta). The children were taken back in time through a realistic forest where models of the Liangzhu people are busy with their daily activities, such as pottery, carving jade, fishing, cooking, and building houses. The museum which is full of interactive activities to educate and entertain children, was designed by British architect David Chipperfield.
