Preschool Program

The preschool program is an immersive, creative curriculum suitable for children aged 3-5 years. During class, activities include using musical instruments, singing Mandarin songs, doing arts and crafts, learning traditional Chinese writing (known as 'Maobi'), and much more.  This curriculum integrates cultural recreational activities into studying, making classes exciting and enjoyable for our younger students. In conjunction with maintaining a fully immersive environment, children learn daily-life conversational skills organically, that is, they learn these conversations in context. For example, students learn vocabulary associated with family members, food, daily routines, household items, and daily activities by having conversations about those things. Students may also bring projects in and out of the classroom to maintain language at home as well.
