BRADLEY played host to a delegation of Chinese academics and early years practitioners.
The 20 visitors were here to see the head office of the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) at Bradley Business Park and to learn more about how the early years education system works in England.
The group included academics from the Beijing Institute of Education as well as kindergarten principals and teachers. They were keen to learn how nurseries are regulated and what makes a high quality nursery.
Purnima Tanuku OBE, chief executive of NDNA, said:“It was interesting to learn about early years education in China and we hope this relationship will lead to future opportunities to work jointly and share best practice across our two countries.”
After their Bradley visit, the delegation visited NDNA member nursery, Oakwood House and Forest School, Huddersfield.
