Our Early Childhood Center provides concrete learning experiences in literacy, numeracy, creativity, and social and physical development.

A warm welcome from our Principal

Welcome to a place where learning is an exciting adventure filled with laughter, exploration and growth. At Wuhan Yangtze International School, our Early Childhood Center (ECC) program is designed to create a joyful and stimulating environment that nurtures young minds while fostering essential social and academic skills. Through a carefully crafted curriculum, a focus on collaboration and play, and a unique teaching team model, we ensure that every child's journey at Wuhan Yangtze is a journey of discovery.

Children learn best when they are engaged, curious and having fun. We blend play-based learning with academic fundamentals to create a balanced and enriching experience. Our classrooms are transformed into interactive learning environments where children engage in hands-on activities. While fun remains central, we introduce age-appropriate academic concepts in literacy and numeracy.

We embrace a teaching team model that maximizes the impact of our educators on every child's learning journey. Our ECC and Elementary departments collaborate closely, allowing each student to benefit from the expertise of multiple teachers.

We hope you will consider Wuhan Yangtze as the best place to exceed your child’s academic, emotional and social needs.
