Su Yun's Chinese Learning Center provides after-school care for elementary school-aged children who have an interest in learning Mandarin while having fun! We believe this can be accomplished through progressive and project-based learning, utilizing STEM-related activities but with the Chinese language in support.
Kids are naturally curious so driving questions form the basis of our teachings. Students will rotate through stations that are specially designed to provide them with the tools to provoke thought, be inspired, and promote creativity.
Our curriculum is unique in that we blend science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (aka STEM) with Mandarin immersion. We want to raise cultural awareness, whilst expanding their knowledge of subjects that are instrumental to their future success.
Prior language experience is not required. Our program is geared towards students in grades K through 5.
素云中文学习中心是一家为有兴趣学习普通话的小朋友创办的中文下午班！ 我们以普通话贯穿基于项目和 STEM活动的学习过程，让孩子们在快乐的气氛中学习中文。
We are centrally located at 850-A Talbot Avenue at Solano Avenue, just a short walk from Cornell, Marin and Oceanview Elementary Schools. Pickup service, if offered at your school, is provided at no extra charge.
Monthly tuition is based on a number of factors, such as:
school pickup time or arrival time at the Center,
number of days enrolled (2-day minimum), and
whether more than one child from the same family will be attending
Please contact us with your after-school needs so that we can provide you with more exact pricing.
We will be open from 11:30am to 6pm during the school year. Since we follow the Albany Unified School District calendar, our after-school program runs from Tuesday, August 27th, 2019 to Friday, June 12th, 2020. We will be closed during major holidays and AUSD breaks. Our summer program begins immediately after the academic year ends.
Our daily activities consist of snack time, homework time, outdoor playtime, language instruction by level, STEM station rotation (maker space, arts and craft, multimedia room, theatrics, etc.) where language, culture and heritage will be reinforced, and choice time.
