Did you know that Chinese is the world’s most widely spoken language today? As China’s economy and global profile continues to grow, it is becoming ever more important for your child to have a strong foundation in the Chinese language, so that he or she can excel in the future world.
Since 95% of a child’s brain develops before the age of 5, the early years are the best time to ingrain strong language fundamentals in your child. Especially for English-speaking households, sending your child to a Chinese preschool helps to ensure that he or she is able to immerse in a Chinese-rich environment to master the language and be effectively bilingual by the age of 6.
A research by the Graduate School of Education at Harvard University shows that learning multiple languages allows young children to have stronger cognitive skills.
Building a Strong Foundation in Chinese
Mulberry Learning’s new Chinese Preschool @ Fusionopolis is our first preschool designed with a proprietary Chinese immersion programme which nurtures your child’s love for learning and transforms them into maestros of the Chinese language. Crafted by educational experts with over 30 years of early childhood experience, children are exposed to the language as they learn, play, listen, sing, dance and interact with the teachers and their peers in Chinese. The myriad of fun activities help children learn about the amazing arts, literature, philosophy, and festivals of one of the oldest cultures in the world.
Besides developing a sound foundation in the Chinese language and its culture, children learn in a multi-disciplinary manner across subjects like Drama & Communication, Mathematics, Science, Music and Art & Craft. Weekly activities include learning traditional Chinese poetry, calligraphy, Chinese idioms, festivals and traditions, as well as moral values through the Confucian principles of “Di Zi Gui” (弟子規).
The programme builds a strong foundation in Chinese with strong emphasis (80%) on Chinese especially in a child’s formative early years, accompanied by a gradual increase in English as the child reaches the Kindergarten years, thereby effectively nurturing bilingual children primed for success in Primary School and beyond.
As the Chinese preschool programme is also integrated with Mulberry Learning’s award-winning iDevelop / iExplore / iExperience / iLearn curriculum model, parents can rest assured that signature programmes like Reggio-inspired Project InquiryTM, Habits of MindTM and Literacy FunTM are still included as part of the holistic learning that nurtures the Future Ready Child.
