Benefits of parents-children classes

In our increasingly global world, parents realize that their kids will benefit from knowing more than one language. Exposing your child to a second language–Chinese will help him learn about eastern cultures. Research has shown that bilinguals tend to be more creative thinkers than those who speak one language, and one study suggests that their brain functions may stay sharper as they age. It is clear that active parent-children classes during the first months and years of life have a huge impact on brain development enhancing motor skills, mathematical abilities, social skills, language development, emotional development, parent-child connection and more. Our school offers a gentle introduction to the group setting and a welcoming home-like space for parents and children. Here, children can explore and experience a rhythm and a calm atmosphere for Chinese language that supports play, healthy self-initiated movement, and imitation. Themes related to child development and parenting the young child are explored through readings and facilitated discussions.
