Ya Ya Team Holiday
Ya Ya Team Fall Celebration

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 childrens’ academic and career success.

Who are Ya Ya Teachers?

Ya Ya teachers wake up eager to get to school and engage with their students. They find sheer joy in watching the children learn and grow academically, linguistically, and socially. They are passionate about art and music and share it with the children through daily activities. Our teachers exude patience and love as they guide the children throughout the day. And of course, they meet or exceed New York state certification standards.


Meet our Awesome Administrators!
