QI SCHOOL Story
Qi School (Franklin) was founded by entrepreneur Mr. Liangming Qi who is passionate about early childhood education. After 10 years of heading one of the biggest retail chains for mobile phones in China, Mr. Qi immersed himself in the field of early childhood education and founded Qi School which has expanded to 15 facilities in China and the U.S. He has donated to found the Qiliangming Research Center for Preschool Education at West China Normal University
After three years of preparation that included curriculum development and renovation of a beautiful, light-filled building, Qi School opened its doors to families in June 2016. As a proud provider of education and care for children from 6 weeks to 5 years old, Qi School was held to the highest standards from the very beginning. Under the leadership of Business Manager Dr. Amina Mi, who holds a Ph. D in Science Education from East China Normal University, and Director Tracey Jobin, who has been working in the field for over 20 years, Qi School has gained families’ trust and grown over the past three years. We are always looking for ways to improve our educational practices, and hope to continue growing along with our children and families.
