Preschool N2- Budding Dandelions
For our budding dandelions, our programme aims to make learning the chinese language easy and enjoyable. Proven by Harvard University, the minds of young children become more flexible, creative and critical in thinking upon learning new languages. We firmly believe in the importance of appreciating the art of the chinese language and we would be glad to provide them with a strong fundamental to enable them to harness the beauty of language in the early stages of their lives.
By providing the children with interactive songs and story telling, we wish to spark interest in them, developing their love for the chinese language. With basic penmanship, we will equip our budding dandelions with good writing habits, that will be beneficial in the long run as they grow.
Kindergarten K2 – Little Dandelions
Having embraced the basics from their preschool years, our little Dandelions are now ready to embark on their next journey. Adjusting to Primary School takes time, as such we are here to give them a head start into the next chapter in their lives, acquiring them the confidence they would need.
We hope to further develop their knowledge and appreciation with advanced penmanship and the introduction of Hanyu Pinyin, also dramatically improve their creativity with thought-provoking activities, such as Tell-a-Story, that would nudge their neurons and allow them to blossom into beautiful and innovative thinkers.
Primary School is the start of our now Flourishing Dandelions “real school” life. It is both an exhilarating time as well as highly stressful 6 years of their lives. Given the right foundation, the necessary encouragement and guidance, our students thrive. We are here to help them along the way and all the way.
The foundation of our Primary curriculum is built towards the all-important PSLE examinations. Our syllabus follows closely the school texts to reinforce and enhance what our students learn in school – especially for those weaker in the language. For stronger and higher Chinese students we challenge them to deepen their grasp. Our ultimate goal for our Flourishing Dandelions is to be critical thinkers, confident and articulate, and achieve academic success.
PSLE is over and the next adventure begins. Our Flourishing Dandelions are now taking the big leap towards adolescents and adulthood. It is time for change: new school, new friends, new teachers, on top of which – 4 new subjects. As an Accomplished Dandelion, they also go through a host of emotional, mental and physical changes. The once chirpy and talkative dandelion is now quiet and sullen.
Given the pressures of school, a sense of new found freedom and mood swings, it is easy for young teens to go awry. We take this opportunity to open our doors to our Secondary School students to invite them to “hang out” at XueLin. With our teachers as mentors, we help our Accomplished Dandelions to meander through this difficult and tumultuous time. We also understand, at this age, they do not want to be told what to do and what not to do. Rather they want their opinions heard. We channel this energy to help them vocalise in a positive way; help them concentrate their efforts on ultimately their next milestone – their “O” Levels.
There is no such thing as a student as every student would eventually meet hurdles they find difficult to overcome. We wish to make such obstacles possible for them.
Our specialised intensive training is designed to target each student’s weaknesses, preparing them for the upcoming semester, granting them the confidence they require to score for the Chinese language. Utilizing a wide range of cultural lessons, we aim to also provide our students with an enriching and fulfilling holiday, one they would never forget.
