EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAM
Monday—Thursday 9:30 am - 1 pm
For children turning 3 years old by September 1.
We recognize that children learn through active investigation and discovery from their environment and that they love meaningful, hands-on, play based activities. With a balance of strong academic instructor guided learning and hands-on developmentally appropriate inquiry-based experiences, children move through thematic and project-based curricula in an environment which promotes differentiated levels of difficulty in order to meet each individual child’s need and interest. We plan sequentially more challenging curriculum, emerging from their interests, to help children naturally work to refine skills that help them become independent and more capable. We recognize that their self-confidence is derived from independence and independence skills give them the confidence necessary for future learning. We believe that all children are born with unique abilities, and given the opportunity to pursue them; each will discover his unique gift.

The most important goal of our curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging them to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try ideas and to think independently. We help guide our children to become independent, self-confident, inquisitive lifelong learners. We allow them to learn at their own pace and take each child’s individual learning style into consideration. We model good habits and attitudes and help give each child the confidence to see the positive in themselves and others.

Chinese Language Classes
Tuesday and Thursday 1:15 pm to 3 pm
For children 3-5 years old
Children learn language best by being immersed in it. Our Chinese Language Classes are led by two very qualified native Mandarin-speaking teachers: a head teacher that only speaks Mandarin and a bilingual-speaking assistant teacher.
Our program inspires a love of language and a deep connection to Chinese culture. Students learn interactively through stories, dramatic play, games, music and movement, performance, arts and crafts, and more. They enjoy exploring a theme-based curriculum centered around topics children enjoy such as family, holidays, seasons, animals and foods. Students also learn about important cultural events.
Carefully structured to build fluency in speaking, listening, reading and writing Chinese, the program is designed to meet the needs of beginning Chinese language speakers to advanced learners through use of authentic materials and meaningful learning approaches.
