The Tiny Dragons Preschool program offers younger students, ages 3-5, a full Chinese immersion environment and an early start with the Chinese language. This early learning takes advantage of a child’s innate ability to distinguish the subtle tones necessary to acquire fluency in the Chinese language. Our premiere language immersion program encourages children to learn, play, and grow through developmentally appropriate, play-based activities in Mandarin. We believe that a play-based environment balanced with routine and structure gives children the freedom to explore, make discoveries, solve problems, and develop social skills. Students will follow a curriculum that teaches appropriate preschool topics, such as shapes, plants, weather, and food, in a fun, engaging setting, and, most importantly, all in Mandarin.
- Small class, customized learning in two age groups of 3-4 and 4-5 – students are taught in their instructional/age level
