MSB was established in 1990 by Caroline Chen Gaillard in a schoolroom with 10 students at the Norwegian Embassy, and soon relocated to a spacious building in the Sanlitun district of Beijing to accommodate growing enrolment. As the demographics of Beijing’s international community changed and many families began moving to the suburbs, we built small, “neighbourhood” schools at Beijing Riviera and River Garden Villas to be nearer to our students.
The Family Learning House
Recognized as a model kindergarten by the Chaoyang Ministry of Education, The Family Learning House is a virtues-based, bilingual preschool dedicated to acquiring knowledge and good character for the purpose of serving humanity. We integrate the “Virtues in Us” character education program with an academically stimulating Montessori and Chinese curriculum. The physical environment of the school is truly beautiful and environmentally sustainable – features of which include a petting farm, organic produce, and child-directed recycling program.
The Children’s House Montessori Kindergarten
The Children’s House International Montessori Kindergarten was the first Montessori Kindergarten to be founded in Beijing. In 1992, we opened our doors to the children of the world at the China World Trade Center. Today, The Children’s House caters for more than three hundred children up to the age of six, who hail from every corner of our globe.
In January 2003, due to overflowing numbers, we opened our second downtown campus in the Beijing Lufthansa Center. Since then we have opened two more campuses - one at Yosemite Villas in the suburbs of Beijing and most recently at Yayunxinxin Gardens near the Asian Games Village.
All of our campuses provide the perfect environment and dedicated staff with the aim to achieve love, growth and peace amongst our future generations.
