Feb. 18 - The world's largest panda breeding centre, in China's Sichuan province, opens a "kindergarten" for baby pandas.

The school at the Wolong Giant Panda Breeding and Research Centre in China's Sichuan province is the first of its kind.

Five female and 11 male baby pandas will spend at year living there, away from their parents.

The centre hopes a taste of independence and group play sessions will help develop their social skills so they'll find a mate more easily.

A low reproduction rate is a prime reason the panda population is threatened.
