kinder-1The foundation for success in the primary grades begins in Kindergarten with children actively participating in a wide variety of organized activities and purposeful play experiences.

Learning environments are created which are based on contemporary education research and provide developmentally appropriate programming for Pre-Kindergarten Preparation, Pre-Kindergarten, Junior Kindergarten and Senior Kindergarten children.

There are two kindergarten options available:

  • SLS Kindergarten, a bilingual program, in which children receive care and instruction from both Chinese and native-English speaking teachers.
  • TIS K, our international kindergarten program, open to foreign passport holders, in which children receive care and instruction primarily from a native English speaking teacher, with some Chinese instruction as a second language.
