NWCA’s Early Education Program immerses our youngest students in Chinese language and culture through music, art, games, songs, stories and play. Children participate in active, hands-on learning in Chinese through experiences that are developmentally appropriate for young learners. In addition, our early education students participate in an English Language Arts Program tailored to their level. We provide a warm and encouraging environment that prepares our students for our Elementary School Program by building a strong foundation for learning in an immersion environment.
- Children ages 3-5 years
- Full Immersion (Even Social Studies, Science, Art, Music, PE taught in Chinese)
- Advanced English Literacy Program
“It has been amazing to watch a four-year-old child understand and respond to a language she had never heard before stepping through the doors of NWCA. She has learned so much in just a year at the school, and not just Mandarin language skills–she tells me about science, art, and math lessons every day. It’s great to see how she has improved in writing English, too! ” – The Johnsons, NWCA Parents
