About the Program

In addition to our 4 day preschool program GGIS offers a bonus day on Fridays. Parents may reserve every Friday or drop-in as needed. Fridays are currently Mandarin language enrichment and English. Children will learn simple phrases, numbers, colors and greetings in Mandarin from a native speaking teacher. This class is very interactive and child centered. Hearing and learning Mandarin is done in a low-pressure and fun environment. Breakfast is included each day.

“A child is born able to be happy; it is best to preserve this magnificent nature and not teach her to want things or to have life always go her way.”
