The Tiny Dragons preschool program is for children 4-5, years old, 3 year old children are accepted pending assessment. All students must be potty trained. The preschool program offers full Chinese immersion and offers the younger students an early start with the Chinese language to take advantage of a younger child’s innate ability to distinguish the subtle tones necessary to acquire fluency in the Chinese language. Students will follow a curriculum that teaches basic preschool topics, such as shapes, plants, weather, food in a fun, engaging setting. Our preschool program encourages children to learn, play, and grow through developmentally appropriate, child-friendly, play based activities in Mandarin. We believe that a play-based environment balanced with routine and structure provides children freedom to explore, make discoveries, solve problems, and develop social skills. Preschool also offers flexible schedules to meet the need of preschoolers and their families.
Priority will be given to siblings of HCCS students (public program). Enrollment in this program does not guarantee admission to HCCS.
