Learning with FUN
We are based in Melbourne and specialise in teaching Mandarin Chinese to children from 4 year old onwards. We believe in investing in children in long term education and hence we optimise their learning using our unique methodologies and our very own books and CDs which are provided with no extra cost.
KaiXin means 'HAPPY' in Mandarin and it reflects the happy and relaxed environment we provide to the children to accelerate their learning capabilities.
Parents need to feel comfortable that their children are safe and cared for appropriately. We put a lot of emphasis on upholding the Duty of Care for the children while they are with us.
The classes are small with between 4 to 10 children and delivered in 90-minutes weekly classes.
We currently teach in four locations in Melbourne (North Melbourne, Doncaster East, Hawthorn East, Mulgrave and Glen Waverley). If the children are unable to attend their regular session, they are welcome to join an alternate class of the same level in same or another location ( if available) to ensure they do not miss out.
At KaiXin we have taken a more holistic approach in designing and developing a step by step curriculum, books and CDs incorporating creative story-telling that touch on children's everyday life events, Chinese culture, numeracy and problem solving.
Our pedagogy incorporates engaging, motivating, interactive methodologies; and fun through visual, auditory and kinaesthetic (VAK) way, acting, play-like activities, songs, music and usage of both the left and right brain.
Our classes begin as bilingual throughout the early stages of learning. However as the children begin to acquire some foundation of Mandarin, we will start to immerse them in the language and conduct more and more of the lessons in Mandarin.
This way we can ensure the children are fully engaged , comfortable from the very beginning yet have the opportunity to accelerate their learning as their competency and understanding progress.
