We are a Chinese (Mandarin) immersion pre-school located conveniently in El Cerrito near Harding Elementary School, the El Cerrito Plaza BART station, and the El Cerrito plaza. We opened in February 2006 as a small family daycare and have since evolved into a preschool with students from different backgrounds. No prior Chinese background is required or expected.
Our program is for students ages 10 months – 5 years old. New students are accepted from ages 10 months – 3.5 years old.
Students are immersed in an Mandarin rich environment on a daily basis. Colors, numbers, songs, daily conversations and salutations, etc. are taught daily in both Mandarin and English. Extra preparation for those preparing to enter kindergarten in the upcoming year is provided but all students are taught the basics (ABCs, numbers, colors, shapes, patterns, money, time, etc.) much earlier.
Lunch and dinner are provided everyday, with a focus on healthy, wholesome foods.
Students do not need to be potty trained to be enrolled. Potty training is provided when the student is ready and/or at the parents’ request. We work closely with parents to ensure a smooth transaction from diaper to toilet.
Director Kiki has over ten years of experience teaching students of all ages (infants to adults) through various channels, including her own tutoring center and private tutoring, before becoming the full time director in 2017.
Teacher to student ratio is 4:1.
