“The secret of education lies in respecting the pupil. It is not for you to choose what he shall know, what he shall do. It is chosen and foreordained and he only holds the key to his own secret.” 

― Ralph Waldo Emerson


Our Mission

Our "dual-immersion" Mandarin and English program integrates Mandarin into the general education curriculum.  No prior exposure to Mandarin is necessary; it is designed for English-speaking and Mandarin-speaking students to develop communication and literacy skills in both languages.  Our mission is to provide young children with an exceptional educational experience.  We nurture social, intellectual, physical, and emotional growth through experiences that are age-appropriate. Our goals are to encourage a love of learning, confidence, and creativity.

Our Philosophy

We believe that preschool should be a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment where children feel secure, respected, and cared for. Children will take part in planned, active learning experiences to build their readiness skills and awaken their spirit and imagination.  We believe children should learn through experimentation, exploration, and collaboration.  The work they do in the classroom should be tied to real-world experiences and lessons.  Children will participate in activities that build community and support respect for diversity.  The program also supports the relationship between children, their families, and the preschool staff.
