Growing the Seed of Mandarin Chinese


Baby Pandas

Designed for new families interested in our school. Classes has many of the same elements of our drop off classes but is shorter in duration and caregiver stays with child in class to learn together. This approach allows our youngest children to become comfortable with our classroom and staff as well as gives parents a glimpse into our education approach. This course provides a platform for older children to move to our drop off class.

This course is designed to be fun and dynamic for children ages 2 - 5 with limited Mandarin exposure. Each week, we will explore Chinese language and culture through art, music and stories. Basic written Chinese will be introduced. Drop off only.
