Through years of experience and observation, our teachers have completely written a new curriculum just for Southside Mandarin students.  Based on modern children’s needs, their international background and multi cultural school environment, plus parents’expectations, we fully understand the requirements of children growing up in the 21st century.

Our kindergarten syllabus includes Level 1 – 4 for children 2 – 6 years old, with a theme based curriculum and gradual progression in language learning, our children will build a strong foundation in reading, writing, reading and speech. 

There is also our separate Character Writing syllabus from Level 1 – 5.  Depending on each child’s development, our Writing texts will help children prepare for single word character writing up to short passages for children 5 and up.
