- Welcome Message from Gill Thorne M.A.,
Head of Lucton School UK
The opening of Lucton Kindergarten in Shanghai gives me great pleasure. For over 300 years, at its historic site in England, Lucton School has provided excellent education for children up to the age of 18 in preparation for places at top Universities.
Since the UK government introduced the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum 30 years ago, the Lucton Nursery has offered education to children from 6 months upwards. The Lucton Kindergarten Shanghai curriculum mirrors the quality and content delivered in our own Lucton UK Nursery.
There can be few more important decisions than that of your child's education; it is an investment for life. At Lucton we recognise the enormity of the trust you as parents put in us, and our responsibility to build firm foundations, instil moral values and bring out the very best in your child. The decisions made at this stage are crucial to the development of your child, emotionally, socially and intellectually. It is at this point when children discover how to learn, when the future level of their cognitive ability is mapped out and determined. Our small groups and experienced staff create a secure and supportive environment for learning.
I very much hope you, as parents, will enjoy and be satisfied with Lucton Kindergarten Shanghai and I am certain that your children will reap the benefits of an 'outstanding' early education, achieved through constructive play, expert teaching and positive learning experiences involving high levels of adult interaction.
- Welcome Message from Shelly Wei B.A.,
Head of Lucton School SH
As the first head of Lucton Kindergarten Shanghai, I feel very privileged to continue the long educational tradition of Lucton School UK here in Shanghai. We are fortunate to be able to start with a new, custom designed Kindergarten in a very safe environment with excellent garden and recreational facilities.
We are fortunate that we have a curriculum specially designed for us to prepare children for entry to the best primary schools in Shanghai. We will be keeping in close contact with the schools our children are likely to move to, in order to ensure that passage to the next stage of education is as smooth as possible.
I look forward to working with you to provide the best possible future for your children.
