Parent & Me
Children 3 to 5 years old are to introduced to the Chinese language in an enjoyable environment where they are encouraged to share their feelings freely. We use many different ways to introduce the Chinese language including songs, story, rhymes, dance, finger play and crafts. Children have fun, enjoy learning and speaking Chinese and are introduced to customs, culture and major Chinese holidays such as the Moon Festival and Chinese New Year. Students will also use Chinese to discuss American holidays such as Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
