There are few more treasured languages than Mandarin - it’s increasingly used in today’s world, and (theoretically) tough to pick up!

But we slide it easily into your child’s early learning habits. Safari Kid delivers a Kindergarten Level 1 to 3 course in Mandarin, along with English, so they are close to fluency by the time they reach a big school.

As they write English words, they’ll do the same for simplified Chinese, which leads them to inscribe 50 characters at the end of our program. We’ll work on their speaking too; our Mandarin teachers help kids ask questions, share ideas and express themselves as they try out speaking in a group.

Lunch, stories and free play are sometimes Mandarin-only to really immerse your child in the language and support knowledge retention.

Meanwhile, pinyin acts as a phonetic aid at our preschool, so kids can see where their English vocabulary crosses over.
