Full Day Mandarin Immersion Montessori Preschool

Language learning is a long journey. Allow us to help your child learn the beauty of Chinese language and culture everyday in our Montessori Chinese immersion preschool program. Our caring native speaking staff with advance degrees in education focused on early childhood development will provide an immersive learning environment for your child. Children in our preschool have freedom within limits to explore the environment as well as repeat their work freely based on their choice within a highly protected 3-hour work cycle each and everyday. We believe that through repetition based on personal choice, a child learns to master skills which build the foundations for a lifetime of learning. We use the Montessori toddler and early childhood curriculum taught by properly credentialed teachers in multi-aged classrooms. Our environment provides for child-directed work with daily uninterrupted work cycles. True to the Montessori philosophy, our classroom consists of children of mixed ages where older children can model for younger children and the younger children learn from the older children. Our classroom is filled with authentic Montessori materials suggested by the American Montessori Society.
