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 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 that is, 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
  • Blended age classroom activities to create a nurturing community among classmates – to learn and to be learned
  •  Low staff-child ratio to ensure program quality – allow more individual attention and curriculum instructions, reduce time and effort devoted to classroom management, and promote positive interpersonal interactions
  • All students must be fully potty trained before attending the Tiny Dragons Preschool
