Gansu Province has invested 3.6 million yuan in preschool education project including the building of new kindergartens in Luqu County in 2012.

Although the newly-built Jiage kindergarten in Ma'ai Town, Luqu County of Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture is not officially open, recreational facilities on the campus attract many children from the nearby villages.

With basic infrastructures completed, workers are busy with finishing touches on the campus, planning to welcome the first batch of children in September this year.

The 53-year-old Kalsang Gyal, a herdsman from Jiage village, cannot wait to walk on the campus. "We finally have kindergartens in the village,which is very good for children to receive education. It is hard to imagine because I didn’t know what a kindergarten was before," said by Kalsang Gyal.

"Due to the remoteness of its location, children from the pasturing area have difficulty in going to school, let alone the access to kindergarten," he added. Most part of the Ma'ai town is located on the plateau region as an excellent natural pasture.

Kalsang Gyal's two grandsons are sent to the kindergarten of Luqu County. "In order to provide good education for my grandsons, we move to a new herding village near the downtown and hope they can find good jobs in the future after receiving good education," said by Kalsang Gyal.

Daoji Pumao, head of kindergarten of Luqu County, said that the kindergarten is a window for children to gain the outside information.

The preschool education not only promotes children's bilingual language (Tibetan and Mandarin) practice, but also enlightens them at an early age. Parents are required to pay more attention to children’s growth, and more preschool teachers are also needed in the Tibetan areas.
