A Total Mandarin-Immersion Learning Experience
Through our Mandarin-Immersion curriculum, children become young maestros of the language, acquiring an expressive word bank of over 3,000 words and learning over 35 Chinese poems and 50 Chinese idioms by the time they enter their Primary school years.
Not only will the children gain a robust foundation in Chinese, they will also discover and learn about its rich culture, customs and traditions as part of the immersive experience.
Our Curriculum Highlights
1. Mandarin-Immersion Integrated Thematic Learning
Thematic Learning is a well-established preschool approach which integrates different subject areas under a common theme, allowing children to better retain information and learn through interactive activities. Our integrated lessons are divided into 4 parts, namely Music & Dance, Word Recognition, Thematic Activities and Learning Corners, providing children with a multi-sensorial, engaging and fun way to learn.
2. Mandarin-Immersion Project Inquiry
Children learn best when learning is applied to the world around them. Each term, through a 3-step Project Inquiry process, children embark on interesting projects that help them discover more about particular topics, deriving insights, testing hypotheses, and presenting observation findings along the way – just like a budding little Scientist!
3. Chinese Culture & Heritage Programme
Exposure to traditional Chinese culture, arts and heritage help to deepen each child’s love and grasp of the Mandarin language. Weekly activities allow children to learn traditional Chinese poetry, calligraphy, Chinese idioms, festivals and traditions, as well as moral values through the Confucian principles of “Di Zi Gui”.
4. Strong Emphasis on Mandarin in the Early Years
The Early Years provide an optimal window for children to acquire a solid foundation in the languages. Classes and activities will be conducted in Mandarin around 75-80% of the time for PG, N1 and N2 children. An additional hour of English will be provided for K1 and K2 children to better prepare them for Primary School.
