Montessori-inspired, Laozi-influenced all-natural learning and exploring!

 

Worldplus's Tiny PanPan Preschool is a 10-month-long Chinese immersion program that starts in September and finishes in June. The mission of Tiny PanPan is to introduce Chinese at an early age and nurture each child’s creativity, curiosity and natural love of learning and prepare them for kindergarten.

Our Philosophy

 

We believe that each child is a unique individual. We are sensitive to a child’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical needs. We provide developmentally appropriate programs that focus on the process of learning and help children enjoy successful experiences. We encourage not just learning, but the love of learning. We create a caring and nurturing atmosphere and foster each child’s creativity and positive self-image. We believe parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life. We strive to create mutual respect and encourage daily communication between parents and us: a partnership for the benefit of the child. Our doors are always open to parents.
