IST offers a free playgroup opportunity for members of Tianjin’s expatriate community, open to children up to 3 years old. It is a wonderful opportunity for infants to engage with others their age, promoting creative play, familiarize themselves with a school environment, and expend some energy! It is also a lovely time for parents to visit, share experiences, learn more about the IST community, exchange ideas and information, and offer support.
Tea and coffee are provided, but you are welcome to bring your own favourite snacks too. The playgroup is run in a collaborative way by the families who use it, and supported by the school administration. We can make art and craft materials available and there are plenty of toys too. Please note, if you are not already a member of the IST community, we do ask that you sign in at the gate each visit and wear the yellow visitor badge while on school grounds.
