Our programs are designed through communication between the room leaders and the language teacher to ensure that it is specifically tailored around each child, the rooms program and its learning experiences.
True Maple Bilingual early learning centre believes strongly in this program, however we do understand with change can come concerns.
We therefore encourage parents to do their own research, like consulting a G.P or child health care nurse to discuss the benefits of introducing a second language to a child.
Jasmine the centre Director/Owner is always available to discuss the programme at any stage prior to permitting the introduction of a second language program to your child.
Should you feel uncomfortable introducing Mandarin to your child, your child’s room leader will be happy to organise alternative activities for your child to participate in.
