Nursery - All you need to know

Introducing Little Mandarin Classes at your Nursery

Little Mandarin Classes offers fun and engaging Mandarin Chinese classes to toddlers and pre-schoolers through our specially designed kinaesthetic teaching approach - learning through various physical activities rather than sitting and listening or watching the teacher.

We combine this teaching method with Story-telling, Role-play and British Sign Language to really enhance children's learning abilities. We use flashcards, games, songs, singing bowl, parachutes and puppets to help aid learning of Mandarin Chinese.

Our classes for Early Years children encourages listening and speaking, we use stories and adventures to utilise the Mandarin vocabulary. Children initially learn the sign language associated with the Mandarin word and repeats this throughout the story - this involves lots of physical movement, creativity, imagination and developing emotional and physical well-being at the same time.

What is a typical class like?

Toddlers class entails lots of songs, 1 - 2 new vocabulary every class, visuals using our flashcards, short snappy stories and activities to gauge their interest. A favourite activity is playing with the rainbow parachute whilst counting to 10 in Mandarin. Children also are fascinated with the singing bowl.

Preschoolers class involves an introduction on greetings, then we sing a song, introduce the vocabulary - typically 3 - 5 every class, a small game, then role-play and story-telling then a recap on the vocabulary they've learnt and ending with a song.
