China Pre-school Education (Kindergarten) Industry Research Report, 2016
Since 2010, China has introduced a number of policies such as the Outline of Medium and Long-term Programs for National Education Reform and Development (2010-2020), Preschool Education Three-Year Action Plan, etc. to strongly prompt the development of preschool education. As of 2014, China had invested RMB204.876 billion in preschool education, 8.37 times that in 2009, which basically eased the ""kindergarten crunch"" and other issues.
Under the radical impetus of policies, China kindergarten industry advances rapidly and shows the following characteristics:
1, A substantial increase in the number of kindergartens, especially private kindergartens.
In China, the number of kindergartens jumped from 116,000 in 2003 to approximately 219,000 at the end of 2015 with a CAGR of 5.4%; wherein, the number of private kindergartens swelled from 55,500 to 143,500 at a CAGR of 8.2%.
2, Significant regional differences due to varying economic levels.
In 2015, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other economically developed regions saw the gross enrollment rate of 3-year preschool education hit more than 95% while the central and western regions (such as Tibet, Yunnan, Guangxi and Ningxia) only about 60%.
3, Fewdominant enterprises, low market concentration.
A kindergarten has limited range of influence, so the Chinese kindergarten market is scattered. Plus, nationwide brand kindergartens are rare, and the market CR5 is less than 2.0%.
4, The promising preschool education market attracts numerous listed companies.
In 2015, numerous listed companies got involved in kindergartens, for instance, Jiangsu Xiuqiang Glasswork Co., Ltd. acquired Whole Person Education, Vtron Technologies Ltd. took over Hoing Education and Golden Cradle, Time Publishing and Media Co., Ltd. built its own kindergartens.
5, Preschool education + Internet becomes increasingly popular.
Amid the development of Internet, brand kindergartens have enhanced competitiveness via the Internet. They mainly build websites to facilitate the interaction with parents, present online orientation courses, enroll students, etc.
