After School Care
MANDARIN LANGUAGE LEARNING
This is one of our most popular programs. Parents may sign-up for one to five days per week or for Spring Break.
The younger the child, the more adept he or she is at learning another language. And since all youth have a predisposition to language acquisition, we offer Mandarin to our after-school children up through second grade. Our after school program emphasizes learning Mandarin through fun and engaging activities. Children engage their fine and gross motor skills, engage in creative projects, and spend time indoors and outdoors. We use the curriculum developed by the Center for Applied Linguistics and modify it to assure that the children are always engaged and having fun. This season's activities have included hop-scotch, jump rope, designing a card board train.
An organic or all-natural snack is provided to the children (parents may opt out).
Parents may request that children who attend school within a walking distance or short bus ride be picked up from school by our staff.
