Mornings in this program are taught in Chinese and are primarily done as full immersion where little to no English is spoken. The afternoons are taught in English and
will cover most of the same topics, stories and songs as the Chinese class. This split allows the child to be fully submerged into both languages so their minds begin to connect the similarities and
differences between them.
Preschool is offered to children ages 3-5. Children must be reliably potty trained to attend.
The curriculum will cover the following and much more:
Preschool students will learn these basics in both Chinese and English using games, crafts, stories, role playing and much more! We use weekly themes such as: holiday, animal, outer-space, cultures, environments, etc. to keep children interested and always learning about the fascinating world they live in.

There are many benefits to bilingualism, some of which we've yet to discover. We often hear about the long term benefits to bilingualism, for example, decreased risk of dementia, greater empathy, and higher wages (see figure 1). But when it comes to young children, the most influential result is an increased attention span (Kamenetz). Children who can focus attention for longer will be able to abosorb more information and complete tasks that they start. Furthermore, children with longer attention spans will be able to commit more time to activities involving social partners, thereby cultivating early friendships. A child who is more adept at focusing and dividing attention will ultimatly get more out of educational activities, social interaction, and play. Goodtime encourages all parents, guardians, and instructors to continue learning about bilingualism, as new benefits are always being discovered!
