The Little Tiger Chinese Immersion Program is a full-day, state-accredited Chinese immersion program in Austin, Texas, that opened its doors in 2015. An affiliate of Chinese with Meggie Language School, founded in 2006, the program is open to students ages 3-6 years old.
The Little Tiger program runs for the full academic year, with hours from 8:30am to 3:30pm, Monday through Thursday. For families who require after-school and Friday care, children may enroll in additional programs.
In keeping with CWM’s core philosophy, classes are small in order to ensure the highest quality experience for students and parents. Our teacher student ratio for this program is 1:11 (1:7 during learning centers).
Little Tiger is a total Chinese immersion program, unique in the Austin area. Students develop their Chinese language proficiency through a thematic and content-based curriculum and through creative play. Subject areas include language arts, math, social studies, science, and the arts. In addition to working with students in these areas, we also feel that it is important to create a context in which our students are able to develop the essential practical life skills that give young children a sense of empowerment and confidence. In sum, we aim to create a fun, creative, interactive, and challenging environment in which children flourish physically, socially and cognitively.
English Reading and Writing
While all classroom activities are conducted in Chinese, our teaching staff works with parents to help their children develop their English language skills at home. As students develop, teachers communicate with parents to provide resources appropriate to the child’s age and maturity level.
Little Tiger staff hold the credentials and skills necessary to meet the needs of young children, including CPR and First Aid certification. Our teaching staff also possesses extensive classroom experience, master’s degree level training in foreign language education, and expertise in early childhood education and child development.
