Preschool program is an immersive and creative program for children 3 to 5 years old. Children learn Mandarin with musical instruments, Mandarin songs, arts and crafts, and traditional Chinese writing, known as 'Maobi'. This method of using cultural recreational activities makes the class fun for the students. Children also learn daily-life conversational skills organically, that is they learn those conversation in context. For example, they learn the vocabulary associated with family members, food, daily routines, household items, and daliy activities by having conversations about those things. The students can also bring projects in and out of the classrom to maintain languge at home as well.
