Ni Hao Preschool - Santa Ana is a Trilingual Mandarin Immersion program that offers daily 30-45 minutes of exposure to Spanish and afterschool English.
Our program offers diversified activities such as Theme Learning, Library Time, Art & Crafts, Calligraphy, Music, Physical Education, Math and Science. We offer flexible times choices, and enrollment options are 2 days, 3 days or 5 days per week.
Ni Hao teaches children to be creative, confident and have a love of learning. In our activities, children will learn Chinese through variety of methods and hands-on exploration. Our goal is that each child will enjoy learning, and be able to have conversations and express themselves in Chinese. With the skills and knowledge that they acquire, children will be able to continue learning languages when as they progress to kindergarten and elementary school. To support children’s growth and development, Ni Hao aims to build a partnership with parents to provide children a fun, effective and loving learning environment.
The Ni Hao philosophy is to make learning both fun and effective, and all of our classes are taught using our own SMART learning model.

Ni Hao believes that it is important to teach children to be self indenpendent and being self motivated learners. We will support children's growth not only in language learning but also socially and emotionally.
Ni Hao uses our own published workbook for math. Children will understand the concept of numbers, add on and subtra on, shapes, measuring and comparing. Children will also learn math through fun hands-on a v es and be ready for kindergarten and elementary school.
Ni Hao offers Spanish classes once a day. Children will have the opportunity to learn and be exposed to another useful language. Classes will be taught using European-style Immersion technique due to its effec veness with Indo-European languages.
Ni Hao is very excited to introduce our Art Program. In class, children will explore and use a variety of materials and media to make fun and beautiful works of art.
Ni Hao is also bringing our PE class to the Preschool program. Already offered at our other locations, it is designed by Ma Laoshi, who has a PhD in Physical Education. The class focuses on development of motor skills and builds healthy habits of exercise.
Ni Hao introduces Chinese poems, virtues, arts and culture as part of our curriculum. We believe that in addition to learn how to speak and write a language, one should also have a knowledge and appreciation of the culture that uses it.
Ni Hao believes science encourages children’s learning, curiosity and logical thinking. They will learn to discover and explore new things on their own as well as in groups. Language development occurs when they use words to describe what they see and discuss what they think with each other.
