Preschoolers Activities, Music & Movement, in full language immersion
Suitable for children aged 3 to 5.5 years
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?
We follow a structured curriculum that covers a range of themes through the year. The 45 minute class involves full body movement, stories, games and interactive activities, involving the use of fun or “real life” props. This class may also include learning to recognise some basic Chinese written characters (visual familiarity only – our Preschooler classes are not reading and writing classes). The Preschool class follows a similar curriculum to the School Aged class, so there is a smooth transition to the older class for your child.
