The two years pre-school Mandarin teaching curriculum is designed and continues to be modified at home. The course contents design is based on children's physical, lingual and mental development and their understanding of the world around them. This course provides a systematic introduction of Chinese as a secondary language for children under 5yr with foundation knowledge and skills in listening, understanding, speaking, and reading of the language. The course will be delivered primarily in Mandarin Chinese.
Engagement: we aim to make every single child feel engaged so that he/she can progress steadily in our courses.
Bespoke teaching: we provide a secure foundation for learning and development, which is carefully planned around each individual child’s needs and interests.
Partnership: we work closely with parents and carers before, during and after our lessons.
Diversity: we welcome children from all nationalities, ethnic groups and learning abilities to join our courses.
Recordings: we share recordings within the class for parents to play for their children during the week - it is highly welcomed by our parents.
Our courses contents and activities are designed around the guidelines set by the Department for Education, Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (March 2014). The activities are challenging but enjoyable. They are purposefully designed with a mix of adult-led and child-initiated activities. For Mandarin Explorer: Panda (3yr - 5yr) a more adult-led structured interactive learning is planned, with the objective being to prepare children for learning Chinese even further in KS1.
We can also deliver this course teaching to your children's nursery school or reception class via Zoom. Please email us to make arrangements at [email protected]
We accept childcare voucher payment.
Playing and exploring: our activities are designed to encourage children to investigate and experience things, and ‘have a go’ with support from their carer and teacher in the class.
Active learning: our activities allow children to concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties and enjoy achievements. e.g. jumping, singing, dancing and being able to count in Chinese.
Creative thinking: our activities allow children to develop their own ideas, establish links, and develop strategies for doing things. e.g.: dressing up day, teddy time!
