Our Classes

What Mandarin Chinese classes can we offer your family?

Ni Hao Children’s Community provide a fun and active “learning by doing” experience for your family. Our Mandarin Chinese( Huáyǔ 华语/華語, Guóyǔ 國語, Pǔtōnghuà 普通话classes are group based sessions as we value the dynamics and interaction between the children and believe that having family involved in a positive way assists the child’s learning.

Classes are categorised into three different age levels:

Toddlers 

For ages 6 months (sitting up independently) to 3 years old.

These are 30 minutes long and each child must be accompanied by their parent/caregiver. The parent/caregiver is expected to actively participate and be involved in the class, as well as provide support for their child’s learning experience. Read more about the Toddlers  classes…

Preschoolers

For ages 2 to 6 years old.

Preschoolers have a 45 minute session and each child must be accompanied by their parent/caregiver. The parent/caregiver is expected to actively participate in vocabulary actions and class games, song and dance, as well as provide support for their child’s learning experience.

Kids 

For ages 5 to 12 years old (however, it is recommended that children remain in the Preschoolers class until they are nearly 6 years old).

Kids have a 45 minute session and children can be dropped off to class and picked up after by a pre-authorised adult. Parents/caregivers are welcome to be part of class and learn together with the group. Parents/caregivers may sometimes be asked by the teacher to be involved as part of the class as “extra actors” or “props”too! Read more about the Kids classes…
