Introducing Mandarin-Immersion Preschool
Starting January 2020, our new Sin Ming (Midview City) preschool will offer an integrated Mandarin-Immersion Curriculum based on Professor Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences approach (same philosophy used by Joy Little Schoolhouse), and we will further enhance it with our award-winning Literacy SMARTTM framework.
The end result is a comprehensive programme that coaches the gradual and sustained development of the child to become a fluent reader, a confident speaker and a budding writer by the age of six. 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.
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.
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!
Chinese Culture & Heritage Programme
Exposure to traditional Chinese culture, arts and heritage helps 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”.
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. Similar to the current arrangement at Joy Little Schoolhouse, we will be conducting classes 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.
Benefits of Mandarin-Immersion Preschool
If English is the main language of communication for your household, you may be wondering how best to build a strong foundation in Mandarin for your little one. With traditional preschools still more skewed towards English, we see parents having to spend money and time on weekend Mandarin classes. Why not save your time, money and effort by choosing a Mandarin-immersion preschool?
Little Green House is proud to launch our new Mandarin-immersion preschool @ Sin Ming (Midview City) which will be opening in January 2020. Taking over the operations of the former Joy Little Schoolhouse, our new Mandarin-immersion preschool will continue to provide a strong focus on Mandarin and the track record of producing students known to ace Primary 1 Mandarin test papers of popular Primary Schools nearby!
Alongside the Mandarin focus, English literacy components from Little Green House’s award winning Literacy SMARTTM curriculum will be incorporated to ensure every child emerges confident, fluent and well-versed in both languages!
