After-School Mandarin Language Program (Ages 5-10)

Ms. Lam Montessori now offers After-School Mandarin Language Program for children ages 5-10! This class is designed for the elementary-age (and select kindergarten-age) children to learn to speak, write and read Mandarin in a group environment. Maximum number of children per class will be 20 children, with 2 teachers.

The Mandarin After-School Program is a structured program with an emphasis on reading, writing and culture. Some additional activities will include Chinese calligraphy, etiquette, chess/games, poetry and cultural stories. This class is designed for the older child, who will be learning in a group environment. We recommend our After-School Care program for children under 5, and our Mandarin Language After-School Class for children 5 and older.
