Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi has recently achieved International Accreditation from the Council of International Schools (CIS); a testament to the commitment to holistic education and a mark of quality assurance to parents, students, staff and wider community.
With the enabling environments, highly qualified and dedicated practitioners, curriculum, and programmes of learning, Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi is also proud to be the first school in China to embark on becoming an accredited "Curiosity Approach" setting, taking the world-class Early Years provision even further. The Curiosity Approach is a modern-day approach to early childhood learning, providing children with an environment, experiences, activities, and resources that foster the innate need to be curious, explore, and engage in a high level of sustained shared thinking. This accreditation will afford the school the recognition it deserves for providing the highest quality of care for all children while nurturing awe and wonder in early childhood and igniting creativity in both the children and the educators.
