Golden Apple Preschool Education Group was founded in 1993，and has a substantial brand influence in western China. It engages in preschool education of 2-6 years olds. There are over 30 wholly owned kindergartens. They currently employ over 40 foreign teachers and most of them stay for at least 2 years and some even for 10 years.
They have recently been authorized to implement the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, an extremely rigorous concept-based multi-disciplinary inquiry learning program. This program puts strong emphasis on the young learners’ development where they become inquirers in class and in the real world outside. For more information on the IB Primary Years Program, take a look at this site:
Golden Apple has its own publishing company and curriculum Teachers will have access to ready-made lesson plans and guidelines so they can focus on teaching and engaging with their students. Each class is equipped with an interactive whiteboard. There are 2 to 3 local teaching assistants in each class to cater to the needs of the young learners and assist in keeping the class well-organized.
