Our Director

Cindy Liao, Founder and Director

I am a mother of an elementary school boy and an infant girl. I have been in the field of education since 1999. With a bachelor degree in Elementary Education from Normal University, I had taught elementary school children and opened my own after-school, Sunday school and summer school program for young children in Harbin, China. In 2006, I came to America and have had a wide set of experiences ranging from after school program instructor, Chinese language teacher, to early education teacher.

After becoming licensed as Director II, Director I, Lead Teacher for Preschool, Toddler and Infant, my passion in Mandarin Immersion early education eventually led me to open the doors of Little Panda in 2012. It’s been such a rewarding, educational, and personal journey. I strive to infuse Chinese language learning with creative and cultural elements for each of our Little Panda cubs, and I invite you to come join our family.
