About Our Kids Kindergarten

In 2003, the first Montessori Academy (Montessori school) was born in Sydney, Australia. Today it has grown to a total of 23 prestigious schools throughout Sydney. It has become a locally recognized Montessori school brand well known for its stellar reputation and high standard of education.

In 2012, Daosen Zhou, one of the founders, came to China with his combination of International Montessori School experience, Montessori education curriculum, and organizational structured management model, holding the belief that every Chinese family would benefit from the Montessori philosophy of education. Across multiple Chinese cities, he went on to establish 11 new Montessori schools beautifully integrating a blend of Chinese and Western cultures.

In 2018, with his breadth of knowledge and insight into China’s developing communities Mr Zhou created his new concept schools and brand – Our Kids Kindergarten.

Our Kids Kindergarten goes beyond the original mode of traditional schools by bringing together community, families and schools. Our Kids Kindergarten does this through thoughtfully combining a comprehensive family centre facility and platform, offering not only after school activities to students but a full range of classes and workshops to parents and siblings. Our Kids Kindergarten is dedicated to building a close-knit community, centred around the schools.

At Our Kids Kindergarten school, we are dedicated to caring for each and every child as if they were our own. We are fully committed to helping each individual reach their fullest potential.

"You are here for a reason."
