LANGUAGE IMMERSION PROGRAMS
At Joy Park Montessori Preschool, we are proud to offer our youngest students a unique opportunity to effortlessly master a second language while receiving a top-quality Montessori education.
Our Mandarin Immersion programs allow English-speaking children to acquire a second language naturally, with the goal of becoming bilingual by kindergarten and enjoying the lifelong benefits of early bilingualism. As one of the first Montessori schools to offer full language immersion, we have established a proven approach that delivers a top-quality immersion experience. Since 2018, we have expanded our language immersion programs to all curricula, thanks to numerous parent requests.
Our application process for language immersion programs follows the same steps as our regular Montessori programs, with eligibility and enrollment based on various factors.
