Chinese is the world’s most spoken language. In essence, its rising prominence as a global language for business has resulted in an increasing demand for Chinese preschools among English speaking households in Singapore. Mulberry Learning’s new Chinese Preschool at Fusionopolis features a proprietary Chinese-immersion program for preschoolers aged 18 months to 6 years, crafted by educational experts with over 30 years of early childhood experience.
The program builds a strong foundation in Chinese with strong emphasis (80%) on Chinese, especially in a child’s formative early years, accompanied by a gradual increase in English as the child reaches the Kindergarten years, thereby effectively nurturing bilingual children primed for success in Primary School and beyond.
Through engaging lessons and activities, children acquire an expressive vocabulary of over 4,200 Chinese words, 80 Chinese idioms, and can recite more than 30 Chinese poems by age 6. They are also exposed to traditional Chinese calligraphy and culture while cultivating positive values and habits through Habits of Mind and the Confucian teachings of Di Zi Gui (弟子规).
Mulberry Learning’s signature Reggio-inspired Project Inquiry program is entirely conducted in Chinese. Children are given opportunities to act as little scientists as they engage in research on selected topics, conducting mini-experiments, analyzing findings, and finally presenting project outcomes to their peers and parents in Chinese!
Moreover, children participate in monthly interactions with children from affiliated preschools in Beijing and Shenzhen via video-conferencing. They not only get to make new friends but also practice and apply their Chinese language skills when they share project findings with their Chinese friends while learning more about Chinese cultural nuances in the process.
Your child would be in good hands as all of Mulberry Learning’s educators undergo over 250 hours of training, thereby ensuring that children are nurtured and guided by passionate, dedicated, and well-qualified professionals. Class sizes and teacher-student ratios are kept small to enable effective teaching and learning for each child.
Mulberry Learning is opening its first Chinese-immersion preschool at Fusionopolis, which is designed to build cultural appreciation and a sound foundation in the Chinese language.
