Meet Our Team!
A Group of Warm educators & dreamers
For children, play is work. As educators we model a joyful work environment by approaching our work with the same enthusiasm that we want the students to have towards theirs. Every single teacher and administrator at Ya Ya Preschool is essential to the success of our students and to our school. We come from different backgrounds, bring unique contributions to our school, and collaborate together to carry out the same goal: providing a nurturing Mandarin preschool as the foundation for our children's well-being and academic success.
Who are Ya Ya Teachers?
Ya Ya teachers wake up eager to get to school and engage with their students. They are full of love and patience, and they all share the same philosophy in creating the most joyful learning environment for children. Our teachers are also lovers of music and arts, as both elements are integral to our Ya Ya curriculum. Regardless of their academic backgrounds, our teachers are required to go through rigorous teacher training and we also provide continuous professional development for teachers to fine tune their teaching skills. All our teachers have a minimum of Bachelor's degree and many of Ya Ya lead teachers hold a Master's degree from well-known universities such as Columbia University or NYU.
