Mandarin Immersion 普通话沉浸

Targeting a 50-50 ratio of Mandarin to English, we immerse the children in Mandarin language, songs and stories throughout the day.  

To transition non-Mandarin speaking children into an immersion environment, we focus first on establishing a routine, and a supportive, comfortable environment. Removing the anxiety that might come with a new place, new people and a new schedule, we take our time to gently introduce simple words into familiar activities, replacing English words with Mandarin ones. Gradually, as a child becomes more comfortable with the routine at day care, his or her mind opens to more readily absorb and respond to a more immersive experience.
