Yu Ying’s New Early Learning Campus
Our construction is under a tight timeline and tracking towards the end of August 2024. We are actively planning for contingency/swing space in the event of a delay. However if swing space is utilized, it would be for an older grade, and PK3-K students would remain at our Taylor Street campus.
