Our Schedule

DSCF6711Infant Program

Our infant program offers care for babies from 2 months to 15 months.

Parents provide breast milk or formula, and food, as each infant’s eating habits are specific, personal, and evolving.  Daily report sheets serve to share information between parents and teachers detailing the child’s day.

Conferences are scheduled every three months and blog entries are completed every week to share children’s development and to facilitate longer parent/teacher conversations.

Preschool Program

DSCF0715Preschool classroom is designated for children from 2.9 years to 7 years old.

The preschool classroom is thoughtfully planned and arranged to suit the children’s growing social and emotional needs, and to help develop their confidence and independence.

The preschool curriculum is designed to promote the development of the whole child: physical, social, emotional and intellectual. Children are given many choices of activities and are encouraged to pursue their own interests. Teachers help children understand and master the language according to their age and Chinese proficiency. Preschoolers are encouraged to speak Chinese in complete sentences and we would even create opportunities for them to are exposed to Chinese written form on a daily basis. The older children also get to learn Chinese writing as a form to practice handwriting, hand control, and patience.
