The new international kindergarden in Hi-Tech Zone, Chengdu, represents a unique merge between Nordic architecture, Danish pedagogy and Chinese culture and traditions. It is being raised in a brand-new district and as a part of Chengdu Century Park.

The kindergarden is designed as a “little sister” for a new Primary school in the same district.
