China Vision works with schools, teachers, parents and educational reformers to promote equality and inclusion for all children with special needs in China.
Qisehua Inclusive Kindergarten
Pre-school Inclusive education for all
Ensuring that every child has equal access to education and can develop their full potential in a happy, inclusive environment is one of Chine Vision’s core principles. Since 2016 we have been working closely with Qisehua, a kindergarten in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province, that has been pioneering preschool inclusion. Qisehua’s mission is to promote inclusive education and individualised development for every child. Founded in 1991, it is the first kindergarten in Henan to practice full inclusion at pre-school level. It is now recognised throughout the province and across China as a leader in its field, providing support and training to other kindergartens and working closely with government, teachers, families and NGOs to develop inclusive practices.
Since 2016 China Vision has been working closely with Qisehua to develop a Resource and Advocacy Centre (RAC), aimed at improving and replicating Qisehua best practice. China Vision supports organisational development and provides mentoring and coaching to Qisehua and the RAC team.
