Our Programs

This program prepares young children for preschool. We engage the children in various activities involving music, dance, discussions about our observations while in the classroom and while outdoors. Our 1:5 (teacher to student) ratio allows us to work closely with the children, guiding and supporting them as they become independent students.

Please check with the site supervisor for a copy of the daily schedule.

The Preschool program is an extension of the Toddler Program. Our teachers continue to guide your young children toward independent learning and self care. As your children start to express themselves more, we introduce more hands-on lessons, i.e. arts and crafts, sensory play and observations.

Our lessons and the classroom environment promote individual thought, as well as teamwork. Our students benefit greatly from our discovery learning centres, our outdoor activities and our immersion program. They graduate fully prepared to succeed in Kindergarten.

Please check with the site supervisor for a copy of the daily schedule.

The Kindergarten Program naturally progresses from the Preschool Program to an advanced level of learning where there is more emphasis on reading, math and art. Your child will continue to strengthen his/her Mandarin language skills (70% Mandarin, 30% English), while simultaneously preparing for grade 1 in the public school system.

Please check with the site supervisor for a copy of the daily schedule.
