Little Mandarins 小橘子
Children play and interact in an immersive environment that gives them opportunities to learn and use Mandarin Chinese. Our Little Mandarins “小橘子” program is a half-day curriculum for children ages 18 months to 4 years old that develops their social, cognitive, emotional, language, as well as fine and gross motor skills. All activities are conducted in Mandarin Chinese by educators experienced in early childhood development. Children are provided opportunities to be introduced to the world and to people beyond the circle of their own families and develop important skills—such as following instructions, problem solving, task completion, self-expression, and group interaction—preparing them for a successful transition into a formal school setting.
Children engage in an interactive learning environment through play, thematic games, hands-on activities, music, movements, and storytelling. The program enables children to develop an early foundation in bilingual and bi-cultural competence during a crucial period in language development.
Classes follow the academic year and are divided into two semesters from September to June. Each semester consists of 15 weeks. Snacks are included.
Enrollment is limited and offered on a rolling basis. Schedule an appointment for a 15-minute visit to our state-of-the-art education facility!
