All things come back to life reflecting furious spring in Denmark in May, when fairy tales also bloom like flowers on beautiful Fyn, the hometown of Andersen.
From May 14th to 26th Denmark time, Lao Niu Kindergarten Teachers Development Project (Phase III) was held in Denmark. More than 20 trainees from Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Shandong, Shanxi, and Inner Mongolia, etc. participated in it to learn and explore Danish preschool education ideas and methods, and experience Danish social culture through on-site visits and practical activities. Our foundation’s President Lei Yongsheng and Project Manager Lankeqi participated in the activities during May 20 to 25 to track and evaluate the project.

“Life is a fairy tale”, and Denmark is the place where the fairy tale begins. In order to explore the secret of happiness of the fairy tale kingdom residents and learn its rational and humanized educational concepts and methods, Lao Niu Kindergarten Teachers Development Project has organized three phases including more than 60 preschool teachers and educators across the nation to visit Denmark, helping them to improve their skills, thinking, and cognition through training, visits, and practice while also inspiring them to think about preschool education and lighting their dreams and passion for education.
Phase III trainees obtained certificate of completion
As our foundation’s President Lei Yongsheng said to this project – “when oriental ‘myths’ meets western ‘fairy tales’, there will be miracles: a batch of people with education dreams have ‘set sail’ …” We expect that the trainees of Lao Niu Kindergarten Teachers Development Project will contribute more to oriental preschool education!
