Panda Garden Children's Center is a Mandarin-immersion childcare center in the Sunset district of San Francisco. We provide high quality child development and language learning, expert care and nurturing, and stimulating learning materials and environments for children 12 months to 5 years old in a Mandarin Chinese language-immersion environment. We offer an emergent, interactive and content-rich curriculum, as well as a very low teacher to student ratio (1:3).
Our educational focus is oriented to the world and aimed at the future. We cultivate a love of learning about language and culture, and the values of respect and community bonds between teachers, students and parents. Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive, enriching, nature-oriented, and Mandarin-language learning environment for young children, to foster their physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development.
Early Childhood should be a time of fun, warmth, security, exploration and discovery. We believe that an early childhood education program should consist of positive and purposeful strategies designed to help children meet their individual goals. Our children experience the joys and rewards of active, hands-on learning through activities both developmentally and individually appropriate. Our children learn and refine social skills, and grow as unique individuals in a respectful environment while learning practical life skills and becoming self-confident, responsible and independent.
