Health and Safety

On-site healthcare is provided in each of our campuses by full-time nurses who are certified to conduct first aid and handle minor injuries or illnesses. In cases of emergency, parents are contacted immediately. We also have 24-hour on-site security guards to ensure a safe school environment, and all visitors to the school are required to register at the gate in compliance with our Child Protection Policy. Parents can rest assured that their children are in safe hands all day, every day, at YCIS Shanghai.

School Uniform

Our school uniform is a distinguishing feature of YCIS Shanghai. We believe that wearing a school uniform helps unite children, develops their self-confidence, and builds a sense of school pride. Therefore, all students in Kindergarten 3 (K3) and above are required to wear the approved school uniform every day. They can be ordered via our online uniform platform here. Our online uniform platform is live throughout the year and enables families to order remotely and have uniform delivered to their home or school.
