Bamboo Shoots Bilingual Preschool
Bamboo Shoots - a Spanish & Mandarin Immersion Preschool
We offer a bilingual environment in Mandarin Chinese, Spanish and English; providing an accelerated, activity-based curriculum for children ages birth to 2nd grade. We provide an intimate, progressive and multicultural education that is ideal for preparing our children, tomorrow’s leaders, for an international future.
Our program is based on children’s innate ability to acquire language at an early age. We integrate language arts, mathematics, science, art, music, dance, social studies, culture, computers, character education, and physical education in dual languages.
In addition to Chinese & Spanish Program, a daily English class allows us to ensure that our students develop strong literacy skills in English. We provide a comprehensive reading program that addresses phonics, phonemic awareness, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension in English.

Our bilingual education curriculum is culturally and linguistically appropriate, hands on, and stimulating to our students interests and imagination.
Inquiry Based Approach
Our custom-tailored curriculum uses a topic-based approach, combining individual as well as group language immersion projects to give children the opportunity to better understand key concepts, as well as the ways they and others think about our world. Units of inquiry will cluster new language and linguistic constructs around meaningful concepts. We learn language best, not by studying language, but by using language for authentic purposes. Our language immersion school's teachers use language most authentically by using language to express our ideas thoughts and emotions.
After School Program
Our after-school program is a full immersion development course. This program consists of a daily supplemental Chinese Language class for students that have prior knowledge of Mandarin Chinese Language. This is a comprehensive, bilingual education Chinese class for young learners that already have a solid foundation in Mandarin Chinese Language and wish to continue to build on what they have learned in prior level classes.
