Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in our international preschool.

Our school first opened in 2005 in Shanghai’s Former French Concession. Since then, we have been offering inspiring family orientated programs for Chinese and international families.

Our creative curriculum is based on insightful weekly topics and six areas of studies including: Language & Communication, Creative Arts, Mathematics, Science & Technology, Physical Development and Social Skills. 

The preschool has also established a strong and long-term partnership with Jiezhou School; recognized in China as a prominent dance and arts school with several campuses across the country and one in Boston USA.


At Melody Jiezhou Art & International Preschool, our mission is to keep the children cheerful in a safe, supportive and comfortable learning environment. Here they can develop at their own pace, while having fun and keep intact the magic of their childhood.

Our philosophy

We believe in:


Parental involvement with their child

Parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life. A quality and cooperative parent-teacher relationship is important for our preschool. We are consistent to keep parents informed of their child's progress through emails, phone calls, lesson plans, images, assessment, as well as parent-teacher meeting and school events. We welcome parents to question, comment and express any concerns at any time.

Fun and hands-on learning.

We believe that explanations and processes are more important than the result itself. Our lessons have a strong focus on a daily and continuous teacher-child interaction with explanations of situations and observations of the world around us. Our teachers believe that young children learn through play and their play is their work. Under this philosophy, they provide entertaining and fun lessons that allow children to play as they are guided to engage through experiment and achieve academic, social and physical tasks. 

The importance of creating an ethical environment.

Children have a great learning potential and by providing the right setting is fundamental to help them meet academic and social standards. We are committed to provide a safe and stimulating environment full of varied, fascinating and challenging opportunities for every child to learn and grow in a community of respect and personal responsibility. At our school we nurture personal growth, independence and respect for all.
