Preschoolers

Preschoolers Music & Movement, in full language immersion

Ever wondered how to sing Wheels on the Bus in Mandarin? Old Macdonald Had a Farm? Or London Bridge?

These engaging group classes use music, rhymes, songs, games and movement to introduce the Mandarin Chinese language. Children will learn Mandarin Chinese through popular action songs and rhymes we have grown up with in New Zealand, and will also learn common Chinese nursery rhymes. Your child will gain confidence in speaking Mandarin Chinese and won’t notice that they are picking up the language as it will be fun and games for them!

There is a maximum of 10 children per class. A parent/caregiver accompanies their child to all classes and actively participates with their child in the singing, movement and activities during the session.

What happens in class?

At Ni Hao Children’s Community, we offer a programme that covers a range of themes through the year.

The Preschoolers class (45 minutes) involves full body movement, stories, games and interactive activities, involving the use of fun or “real life” props. This class will also include learning to recognise some basic Chinese written characters (visual familiarity only – our Preschooler classes are not reading and writing classes).
