Our team of teachers is carefully selected from professionals and dedicated teachers from all over the world. Our teacher to student ratio is maintained at 1:9 for junior classes and 1:10 for senior classes. Each class has its own dedicated Putonghua and English teacher. Our school expects all teachers to be familiar with the teachings and philosophies of Dizigui and to set good examples for students to follow. Our school invites specialist part-time teachers to offer extra curricular classes on Wing Chun, Spanish, French, music, Chinese dance, as well as other subjects.

Crèche Programme (18 – 24 months)
In 2012, RMKG launched the crèche programme, designed to gently introduce children to school life from as young as 18 months old. A strong emphasis is placed on developing trust and helping children feel settled and secure. Students of the crèche class learn through play; immersive activities which adopt the right brain learning methods consistent with our teaching philosophies. To ensure that our crèche students are both comfortable and confident moving to pre-nursery, they are introduced to all the teaching methods used throughout Pre Nursery such as; Letterland phonics, vocabulary, Di Zi Gui and Zhonghua Zijing.
Music is pivotal in the success of the right brain curriculum due to its effects on memory and mood. Students not only participate in daily music classes with a qualified music teacher, but music also finds its place in the Putonghua and English classes. Toys, puzzles and other various apparatus are also used to help foster the development of children’s fine and gross motor skills. By introducing children to a comfortable environment, rich with experiences and full of encouragement, they will grow in independence, knowledge and skill.
Pre-Nursery Programme (2 – 3 years old)
K1 : 3 – 4 years old
K2 : 4 – 5 years old
K3 : 5 – 6 years old
Rightmind International Nursery & Kindergarten believes that good education even starts before the birth of a child.
