Founded on the core values of "Care" and "Responsibility," RYB Education, Inc. ("RYB") is a pioneer in the early childhood education market in China. Since opening its first play-and-learn center in 1998, the company has grown and flourished with the mission to provide individualized age-appropriate education to stimulate and nurture children so they can realize their full potential. During its nearly two decades of operating history, RYB has built "RYB (红黄蓝)" into a well-recognized education brand and helped bring about many new educational practices in China's early childhood education industry. RYB's comprehensive early childhood education solutions meet the needs of children from infancy to 6 years old through structured kindergartens and play-and-learn centers, as well as at-home educational products and services. RYB's education philosophy emphasizes the integration of classroom teaching, at-home education and social interaction, and focuses on building a solid foundation for children's continued growth.
As of June 30, 2017, RYB operated a network of over 1000 directly owned and franchised kindergartens and play-and-learn centers in approximately 300 cities and towns throughout 30 provinces and municipalities in China. The company's substantial growth has been powered by its industry-leading curriculum, development capabilities, and teacher training system. Outside of the RYB network, the company also licenses separately developed courses and sells educational products and services through its Hong Shan Enable Alliance.
