Mandarin Kids Preschool
Recent research on brain development and early literacy both indicate the importance of the early years in language acquisition and literacy skills. We believe languages are best learned naturally through meaningful relationships with a target language speaker.
The Cornerstone Mandarin Kids program is designed to encourage language acquisition for children ages 2 years 9 months to four and a half years old. Our teachers carefully plan curriculum and organize the environment to help children acquire linguistic skills of their own. Children are actively involved in concrete, hands-on activity and indoor and outdoor play while they are surrounded by messages in Mandarin Chinese that communicate interesting, relevant information. The interactions between children and our teacher provide opportunities for children to develop an understanding of self and others.
Our small group size and low student to teacher ratio allow children to advance as they are ready.
