Edx Education-Mobile Kindergarten Education for all-2

Edx Education has been involved with the mobile kindergarten, Zhi-Shan Foundation in Taiwan.

With the resources and support from Edx Education the mobile kindergarten has been able to visit more remote villages, teaching children who haven’t previously been able to access formal education opportunities. It has been a great way to be able to provide opportunities for these children to play and learn. The mobile kindergarten is named “Mountain Elf”, and its colourful design was created by the Atayal artist Mi Lu Hayong. The concept is “Sharing Love”.

“Getting involved with the Zhi-Shan foundation mobile kindergarten has been one of the most rewarding projects for Edx Education.

The feedback from Rimong & Zhi-Shan who visited the villages has included amazing stories about the positive changes that have taken place. There has been an increase in communication because of the ability to reach remote areas with provisions for educational opportunities and so much more for families, villages and communities. “This has been a wonderful experience for our Edx team to be part of.” – Murray Jackson, CEO, Edx Education

In the beginning, the program supported elementary school students to receive adequate education and care in indigenous communities, Hsinchu. Zhi-Shan decide to expand the program to kindergarten as well.

The villages are widely spread, it was hard to find the best location for all the young children. Then the idea of the mobile kindergarten was created with funding from Edx Education we can now bring all the educational toys, books with teacher and social workers to more than 12 locations in the mountains near Hsinchu County.

With the van, they provide education for children, provide a support system for parents or grandparents, providing job opportunities to the communities whilst building the relationship with them. Zhi-Shan will then get more opportunities to visit more and more families to then build the support system in the village.

“Every child should have a chance to learn, especially through play and hands on materials”– Pony Wong, General Manager, Edx Education

So now, they are not only bring educational toys and books in the mobile kindergarten, but they also provide cultural courses, a toy library service, and refer kids to early intervention services if needed.

一台車、一張網、一個孩子都不能少—A car, a network, we won’t miss any kids.

At Edx Education, one of our aims is to help provide education opportunities for all especially in the early years. We were pleased to have teamed with the wonderful Zhi-Shan foundation to help make it happen with a mobile kindergarten in Taiwan. We are so excited to have so many of these projects underway at Edx Education.
