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.

We provide an after-school program (includes: Mandarin classes, homework club, arts & sports and a nutritious snack) and 2 scheduling options. Your child may attend our full-care option (Monday to Friday, 3:30pm – 6:00pm) or our custom (you choose the amount of days) option.

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

Our camps are a fun and convenient way to introduce the Mandarin language and Chinese culture to your children. Our “campers” get the opportunity to learn, play, sing, dance and make friends while fully immersed in a Mandarin-speaking environment.

Our theme-based camp (every year a different theme is selected) is packed with lots of arts & crafts, sports, music & dance, guest speakers/performers and field trips.

Please consult the site supervisor for availability and registration details.

We have a March Break, Summer and Winter Camp. Our schedules coincide with the public/separate school boards. Please consult with site supervisor or email info@torontomandarinschool.com for more information.
