At YCIS the early childhood education section (ECE) cherish the home-school partnership to enrich the young child’s learning and development journey. Not only do we organise many parent workshops but also one for care-givers and grandparents. We are lucky to have a strong support network with our little students’ grandparents living in Hong Kong. We value their inclusion in their grandchild’s path. YCIS ECE is a play-based and child-led bilingual environment.

YCIS has its very own Scientist-in-Residence (SIR) programme. Recently the SIR team hosted an exciting interactive VEX IQ Robotics Workshop with Paul Roland Maiquez for our Year 4 - 8 students. Mr. Maiquez, an expert in the field put our students through their paces and introduced them to the exciting world of VEX IQ Robotics. Paul started the VEX IQ Robotics programme in Chadwick International School in Korea. Since then, his robotics team has joined and won several VEX Robotics competitions in Asia and the United States. Paul spoke to us about the workshop and shared his experience and advice for students who want to get more involved in robotics.
