Enjoy an immersion Mandarin learning experience
Ni Hao Children's Community charitable trust provides a fun and friendly place for your child to learn Mandarin Chinese as a Foreign Conversational Language, in a full language immersion environment.
Ni Hao Children’s Community is a small Wellington-based charitable trust functioning as a community language school. It offers programmes that provide your child the opportunity to discover Mandarin Chinese as a Foreign Conversational Language with their peers or family. Your child will learn in a way that is meaningful and relevant to them, with social interaction, games, song and movement. Learning takes place in a full immersion group class environment.
Our programmes are intended for those learning Mandarin Chinese as a Foreign Conversational Language, or where there is little to no Mandarin Chinese language use at home. We have families in the community with various native languages, including English, Te Reo Māori, French, Spanish, Korean, Turkish, Russian, Romanian, Cantonese and Tagalog.
We have queries from around New Zealand, but at this stage, we only offer programmes in Wellington.
He keeps asking me to take him to ‘Ni Hao’! He enjoys going there and loves the songs so much. He wants to sing them every night before bed. 🙂Esther, mother of a 2 year old boy
…very interactive and fun. My boys enjoy it a lot and don’t even notice that they are immersed in Mandarin!Alison, mother to two school aged boys

We like that it’s Interactive and fun, the parent can stay to observe and learn along, and that it is a small group.Connie, mother to three school aged children
The boys like the games, the teacher’s attitude and being able to repeat previous weeks’ learning. I also like that it’s a small learning group.Tina, mother to two school aged boys
We like the more modern teaching, interactive style, and being able to sit with our child.Warren, father to a 4 year old boy
I think you guys do a great job. The cost is very affordable when you compare that to what we pay for dance and music and yet you offer so much resources, all of which so creatively executed to hold and maintain the kids’ attention….(I also) like that it’s friendly and inviting.Raewyn, mother to a 4 year old girl
We love Ni Hao Children’s Community – we hear her singing so often!Anne, mother of a 3 year old girl
We love the classes!!!Pip, mother of two school aged boys
