Why start in preschool?
We believe the preschool years are the most important time in a child’s language and social development. We share your desire to provide the best possible start for your child. We are dedicated to helping children discover their love of learning while developing the values and social skills required to excel throughout life.
We promote personal well-being, reinforce considerate behavior and action towards to others, gradual build-up of autonomy (the Finnish way). Our program is oriented around the following core values: LOVE, PROBLEM SOLVING, COLLABORATION, RESPECT, CREATIVITY, IMAGINATION and FUN.
Our Chinese immersion preschool & pre-k program is child centered, learn thru play and individualized learning, that will help children succeed in future school years.
The earlier a child is introduced to a second language, the greater the likelihood they will become truly proficient in it. It also helps children’s brain development. Children’s brains are naturally programmed to learn any language they are sufficiently exposed to perfectly and without accent. This ability declines with age, disappearing by high school.
“A child taught a second language after the age of 10 or so is unlikely ever to speak it like a native.” That the earlier a child is introduced to a second language, the greater the chances are that the child will become truly proficient in the language.
Students of foreign languages have access to a greater number of career possibilities and develop a deeper understanding of their own and other cultures. children who receive second language instruction are more creative and better at solving complex problems.
Since China’s economic and political rise in recent years, standard Chinese has become an increasingly popular subject of study in the western world. Chinese is the fastest-growing language studied in the United States.
Our focus is on preparing your child for the next century, giving him or her the tools necessary to thrive in their future school years. We believe having fun is the best way to introduce a child to learning. Children learn best when they are nurtured and comfortable so they will take the necessary risks to grow and develop, become critical thinkers and life-long learners.
Being bilingual gives your child more opportunities! By knowing a second language and culture, they can also relate better to other people. By planting these seeds today, our children are more likely to become the productive, well-rounded future citizens, we are hoping they will turn out to be. With your support, now is the best time for your children to learn Mandarin Chinese. Your commitment now will truly give them an advantage later on.
