(CS/MiWa) Five years in the making, the first Chinese nursery is set to open its doors in Luxembourg, welcoming children from all nationalities.

The nursery school's ten teachers will be ready to look after toddlers in Luxembourgish, German, French, English, Portuguese and Chinese, explained Daniel Phong in an interview with the “Luxemburger Wort”.

While the children will spend most of their time playing in a larger group, they will be split into smaller groups so that they can playfully learn different languages.

For two hours a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, the children can learn Chinese as well as learning more about Chinese culture. Phong explained that learning languages is still very easy for young children and that his crèche, “aiSia”, could lay the foundation to learning at least some Chinese.

“Because of the differences between cultures it's easy to misunderstand one another. Such a nursery helps children to see China's culture from a different point of view,” said Phong, who was born in Laos but immigrated to France as a child and now works as a lawyer.

The crèche opens its doors on September 21 with an open day in Bertrange, and places are still available. For more information visit aisiacreche.lu
