Our teaching environment and teaching aids
Growth and learning planning
According to the characteristics of the baby’s month-old age, Golden Baby has developed a 7-stage growth learning plan for the child, and through core courses and special courses, children at each stage can develop their potential and grow up happily.
Diversified Growth Curriculum System
Gymboree follows the empirical research of the critical period and development milestones of children’s development. Based on the multi-scientific theoretical foundations such as cognitive neurology, child development psychology, and children’s sports and health, it cooperates with global education experts to independently research and develop a multi-growth science early education curriculum system.
