Meaningful communication at Huili Nursery Hangzhou

09 Sep 2021


Huili Nursery Hangzhou is full of joy and laughter. Children have started a wonderful new academic year full of curiosity, trying to locate their classroom according to the Nursery map. This is the very first learning opportunity we prepared for children. 

The newly set up learning environments for this semester are waiting for children to explore, to involve themselves in making connections with the world around them. Though some children may feel anxious to be away from their families after a long summer break; at Huili Nursery, we believe each child is born a natural explorer.  The elements and possibilities we offer here will inspire them to have a love for lifelong learning.


With your children in school experiencing this wonderful environment every day, we know that as parents you want to talk to them and find out more about their daily learning and experiences. However, when communicating with your children dialogues do not happen all the time. Body language is also a bridge for beginning smooth and effective communication.  Parents can understand children from their point of view by moving down to be on the same sight line with their child or show encouragement through a nod or a smile.


Here are a few questions for parents to start an effective conversation with children:

  • Which area in the classroom do you often like to explore?
  • What parts of the classroom draw your attention the most?
  • What materials or areas are you not interested in? What could be the reason?
  • Who do you like talking to in the classroom?
  • While you are exploring the classroom, do you like to explore by yourself, or do you explore with your friends in class?


Parents can also refer to the tips below to experience better interactions:


  • Acknowledge children's works or achievements by giving specific comments.
  • If children are not willing to stay or be involved in an activity, it is okay to ask them to observe the activity.   
  • Create opportunities for children to encourage peers’ interaction.
  • Believe that children can solve problems. Parents are suggested to encourage independent problem solving and support children in solving their problems instead of doing it for them.


We believe that children will be more confident and independent and enjoy their learning journey within the meaningful communication that we support together.
