Early Years Education mission to China, Department for International Trade

With a growing demand for early years provision in China, expected to increase following the end of the one child policy, the Department for International Trade (DIT) is offering UK nurseries the chance to internationalise their operations in China and Hong Kong. 


To help UK nurseries, like yours, that might be interested in taking their brand into China, DIT is offering two opportunities.

Early years education mission to China 

This is is an early years education mission to China in September 2017 for UK single-site and/or nursery chains interested in expanding into China and Hong Kong. A formal invitation to apply to join the mission will be sent out on the week commencing Monday 17 July so keep and eye on your inbox.

Briefing webinar

DIT will also be hosting a brief webinar on Friday 21 July, 10am-11am where nurseries can learn more about the different operating models for China, how NDNA can support smaller nurseries interested in this fantastic opportunity and in the trade mission itself.

If you have not yet considered taking your nursery to a new market such as China, you can listen to the introductory webinar DIT hosted in mid-June here
