Of recent, due to China’s fast economic growth, the Mandarin Language is making great importance as the upcoming second most important language in the world.

At Lil’ EliteHouse, we offer Mandarin preschool session from age 4 to 6 years old. When learning a second language, it is always beneficial to start at a young age as children have ability to pick up tones, pronunciation and word recognition. By mastering a second language, it teaches you that there are several ways of expressing an idea and results in the ability to achieve greater divergent in thinking.

Children at our Mandarin preschool will learn these skills through fun-learning activities, for example; games, story-telling, rhymes and pictograph.

Science
The overall goals of children's development in science are to deepen their conceptual understandings of the world around them, to increase their comprehension of how science is practiced and to develop their abilities to conduct scientific investigations. Adults can help children achieve these goals with a supportive environment.

Children approach the world with great curiosity and use their imaginations to help understand it. Hands-on explorations help them to separate reality from fantasy.

Cultural Awareness & Moral Education
The importance of social and emotional development is seen in every area of a child's life. A child will have a strong foundation for later development if he or she can manage personal feelings, understand others' feelings and needs, and interact positively with others. Differences in social and emotional development result from a child's inborn temperament, cultural influences, disabilities, behaviours modelled by adults, the level of security felt in a child's relationships with adults, and the opportunities provided for social interaction.

Moral education will be nurtured at all time at the Mandarin preschool program.

Extended approach: Inquiry based approach for 5 & 6 years old
Young children of ages 5 and 6 years at Lil’ EliteHouse are offered many opportunities to engage in a wide range of materials and resources that extend and challenge their thinking, which in turn encourage them to be competent thinkers and communicators. Students are given the opportunity to explore traditional subject areas through units of inquiry. These subject areas are organised around themes that provide the framework for the exploration of knowledge and with series of exercises and work sessions. Example, if the theme is on the subject about ‘Float or Sink’. The Directress will explain the meaning and reasons of the topics. Children will be given a task to find few items from home and conduct a simulation in school and share with the group. Then, all children are encouraged to develop a short summary or a sketch summary of the items they brought to the school with a summary explanation of what they have observed and understood.

Through the inquiry-based approach, our children cultivate an understanding of essential concepts, attain important skills and knowledge, develop individual attitudes, and learn socially responsible actions.
