Nagqu City in Tibet Autonomous Region sits at an average altitude of more than 4,500 meters, with a sparse population and harsh natural environment. Although the counties of Nagqu are more than 500 kilometers away from the city center, many families from pastoral areas move to the city center for better education conditions.

Covering an area of 4,992 square meters with a building area of 3,461 square meters, the kindergarten can accommodate 360 children.
