Did you know Chinese is the world’s most spoken language? Mulberry Learning’s new Chinese immersion preschool will prepare your child for a truly global future
If you’re keen on ensuring your kiddos are bilingual in this ever-changing, globalist world of ours, an immersion programme is the way to go, mama. Wondering where to start? Mulberry Learning, an award-winning Reggio-inspired preschool with 11 locations around Singapore, has just introduced its first Chinese preschool!
Utilising a proprietary Chinese immersion curriculum for preschoolers aged 18 months to 6 years, Mulberry’s Chinese kindergarten at Fusionopolis was crafted by educational experts with over 30 years of early childhood experience. The programme builds a strong foundation in Chinese, with 80% of instruction in Mandarin – which is essential to language acquisition in a child’s formative early years.
Instruction in English gradually increases as the child reaches the Kindergarten years, effectively nurturing bilingual children primed for success in primary school, and beyond! Along the way, they will have acquired an expressive vocabulary of over 4,200 Chinese words and 80 Chinese idioms, and will be able to recite more than 30 Chinese poems by the time they’re 6. Importantly, they’ll also be exposed to Chinese culture and traditional Chinese calligraphy, cultivating positive values through the Confucian teachings of Di Zi Gui (弟子规).
Mulberry Learning students further boost good habits and positive values through the preschool’s ‘Habits of Mind™’ framework, which focuses on 12 key habits (including persistence, humour, critical thinking, and creativity, among others). Mulberry Learning is the first and only preschool network globally certified for Habits of Mind, though it’s also been adopted by Singapore’s Ministry of Education to groom the top 1% of students in its renowned Gifted Education Programme!
Both in the Chinese immersion kindergarten and at its 10 other bilingual preschools in Singapore, Mulberry Learning’s educators undergo over 250 hours of training, ensuring that children are nurtured and guided by passionate, dedicated and well-qualified professionals. Class sizes and teacher-student ratios are also kept small to enable effective teaching and learning for each individual child. Mulberry Learning also has competitive school fees that range from $1,200 to $1,900 per month.
