Our Mandarin Bilingual programs give your child an exciting early start
Stratford’s newly expanded Mandarin Bilingual program for Preschool through Kindergarten builds upon foundational knowledge, skills, and concepts in our core STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) curriculum, and provides culturally-enriched activities that promote Mandarin language acquisition. Eager bilingual learners will also enjoy new school experiences while developing socialization skills.
Our immersive bilingual environment is designed to promote consistency and continuity for young learners. Stratford’s advanced curriculum is taught by speaking and instructing in Mandarin and English. This team teaching approach creates an inclusive and responsive space in which individual needs are met, ensuring students feel safe and secure to explore, take risks, and learn without limits.
Students explore problem-solving exercises with classmates, without a specified outcome or direction from the teacher, where they learn to build, test, fail, and try again.
In SMART circles, Preschool and Pre-kindergarten students learn the fundamentals essential for future success in mathematics.
With a piano in every classroom and specialty music instructors, our preschool students play, sing, and dance daily – developing motor skills, encouraging movement, and instilling an appreciation of the arts.
During daily SMART Phonics lessons, teachers ask critical questions, and utilize visual aids, songs, and movement to keep students engaged.
