Be a Champ at Learning Chinese at MindChamps Chinese PreSchool

Give your child a headstart in the Chinese language by opting for an immersive school programme in the early years. Established in 2015, MindChamps Chinese PreSchool offers a holistic curriculum with a nurturing and vibrant Chinese-speaking and learning environment, to help children between the age of 18 months to six years old cultivate a genuine love for the language and to speak it fluently.

Learning Chinese does not have to be boring and stuffy. It can – and should – be fun, enriching, and a cultural experience rather than something you have to trudge through to get good grades.

With MindChamps Chinese PreSchool’s two new centres at Cecil Street and Thomson, in addition to its first location in Tampines, the school is now more accessible islandwide.

“Research has shown that children between the ages two and seven are able to absorb a third language best,” said  Josephine Chiang, principal of MindChamps Chinese PreSchool at Cecil Street. “At this age, we encourage children to love the language.”

At MindChamps Chinese PreSchool, children are given the chance to experience Chinese culture and heritage through integrated learning, with hands-on activities like Chinese folk songs, clay sculpting and Chinese calligraphy.

“It is easier to encourage the children to love the language through reading and doing various activities as compared to children who have to pick up the language later during the primary school years. By then, they are doing it for the grades rather than interest,” said Ms Chiang.

MindChamps Chinese PreschoolAn Immersive Chinese-speaking Environment

Children at this preschool will be able to have plenty of opportunities to practise conversing in Chinese, as well as strengthen their natural learning abilities and creative minds. 

Chinese will be used as the main language of instruction for all lessons in Playgroup and Nursery 1, except for two enrichment programmes: MindChamps Reading and Writing and Creativity & Theatrical Strategies.

With two Chinese teachers guiding the class, younger children will be able to understand the language better and faster since they are given maximum exposure in their early years.

As the children progress from Nursery 2 to Kindergarten 2, each class will be taught by one English and one Chinese teacher – similar to the classes in bilingual MindChamps PreSchool centres. This will provide preschoolers with a balanced exposure of both languages ahead of primary school.
