Theoretically Montessori is a physical-touch and face-to-face method to support the children's development, however, Corona-virus makes it difficult and dangerous to happen. Should we stop to support our children to build up their bright futures? Well...
Montessori Mandarin Cloud Classrooms come, and with the children's parents/carers, we change the difficulties to be the children's stepping stones. It is a Teacher-Child-Parent interaction e-classes.
With half adult led, and half of the children's self-chosen activities including repeatable activities at home, to support child's independent thinking and learning in Chinese/Mandarin, and to cultivate child's independence. The cloud classes are carefully prepared to support independence in thought and action. Mandarin social interactions naturally occur around the practicalities of community living. Mutual respect, self-discipline and concentration arise spontaneously in an atmosphere of freedom, in a place where there are interesting things to do.

Sometimes it might take around 3-6 months for a space to become available so it's recommended to join the waiting list as soon as possible. Then we will contact you when there is a space.
Once there is a space in a class for you, you will sign up for a specific day and attend on this day once a week for 1 hours. Each child is to be accompanied by one adult/carer. Twins or siblings may come with one adult/carer.
All sessions are offered in Mandarin–circle time each session includes Mandarin rhymes and songs.
English and other non-Chinese speaking children are very welcome–a great opportunity for your child to be introduced to Mandarin. The qualified Montessori Mandarin teacher also speaks English but uses her/his Mandarin with the children.
There are 8-15 toddlers in each cloud-classroom.
Younger siblings may come along but pay for a space once they are 12 months old. Half price for the child between 12-18 months
If your child is sick or you are unable to attend, you may book in for a make-up class. Only one make-up class is allowed per child per level.
