Perfect for ages 2½ - 5, Twin Cities-area Pre-K programs let the little ones soak up Chinese language skills as they play games, sing songs, eat snacks, and make new friends.

Mínghuì Yòuéryuán, Chinese for Kindergarten, is a unique program for 3 - 5 year-olds that immerses children in Chinese language, cultures and traditions.  Learning Chinese is fun and happens naturally through games and movement, music, drama, arts and crafts, stories and food.  Mínghuì Yòuéryuán provides a wonderful foundational experience in the Chinese language which prepares children for life-long language learning. The program is a natural precursor to Sēn Lín Hú, the Chinese Language Village, a Chinese language and culture immersion summer camp for young people ages 7-18.

Our curriculum is based on a series of fun themes that ensure each class builds on the previous one, continually challenging the learner.  We emphasize both language and culture as important to children’s broadening world view, and the themes are specifically designed with this in mind.  Click here to read about the curriculum themes!

Spanish preschool drop-off classes (for ages 3-5) are held at the Minnetonka Community Education Center (4584 Vine Hill Road, Excelsior, Minn.).  Classes meet one time per week, and there are morning and afternoon options available.
