We provide hot and healthy meals for our students, including breakfast, lunch, and snacks. We will provide our weekly menu through email.
The chef will prepare every meal in the church kitchen and deliver them to the classroom on time. We offer all food and disposable utensils for each child. Parents are required to fill out and update allergy forms when they enroll in the program.
We help improve our student's English skills during morning circle time to prepare them for elementary school.
During our afternoon circle time, we develop our student's Mandarin skills. Chinese is one of the most spoken languages in the world and is also a great brain exercise, which we think make learning the language important for children to learn. In addition to learning the language, we will explore Chinese culture, festivities, food, music, art, traditions, martial arts, and more.
Our teachers will speak both languages to the students so they will be able to learn both languages.
Our mission is to have our students become confident, independent learner who:
Learn by doing and experimenting with ideas
Benefit from countless opportunities through discovery, creativity, and problem- solving, thereby developing inquisitive minds
Nurture social connections and behavior
Encourages their sense of self-worth
Early childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration, and discovery. We truly believe that an early childhood education program should consist of positive and purposeful strategies designed to help children meet their individual goals. Our children will experience the joys and rewards of active, hands-on learning through activities both developmentally and individually appropriate. Our children will also learn and refine social skills and grow as unique individuals in a respectful environment while learning practical life skills and becoming self-confident, responsible, and independent.
