Early Preschool Prep Summer 2023 runs from Jul 5, 2023 to Aug 11, 2023.
Class meets every Wednesday & Friday from 8:45 AM to 10:30 AM.
Mandatory Family Orientation Meeting:
We require that all enrolled families join a virtual orientation via Zoom on Friday, June 30 at 10 a.m. The goal of the orientation is to go over the phase-in schedule and expectations regarding grownup engagement. More details will be communicated via email in early June.
Our Early Preschool Prep program is specifically designed for toddlers who wish to get a head start in transitioning into Ya Ya Preschool. Children will be immersed in Mandarin through an engaging music and art centered curriculum. The small group setting (up to 8 children) provides ample opportunities for children to bond with our dedicated native Mandarin speaker teachers. Our goal is to ensure that children are exposed to Mandarin while becoming familiar with nursery school routines, and have a gentle and seamless transition when they are ready.
Children must be at least 18 months old by July 3, 2023.
One grownup must accompany their child onsite for the duration of this program. However, our teachers will monitor readiness and if a child is able to stay in the classroom independently later on, the grownup can stay in our waiting room.
