The Early Chapter

First of its kind Mandarin Clubhouse for
children 1-8 years old

Let's Play Mandarin

Why The Early Chapter?

Language fluency requires learners to fully embrace a language as a communication tool. Language is best learned by using it in our daily lives and activities, rather than through a traditional classroom approach.

Mandarin Chinese fluency can open many opportunities and the language is now widely taught in schools. But few school learners can articulate in Mandarin like a native speaker.

The Early Chapter is a clubhouse / playgroup that immerses children in Mandarin as they embark on a world of exploration, creativity and camaraderie. Children learn and use the language during play and a host of fun activities. We aim to create an enjoyable and effective learning environment. One of the favourite place at the club is our Happy Kitchen where children learn Mandarin through cooking their favourite dish.

The lessons offered are interactive, well-structured and interesting. It helps the children to enhance their appreciation of the Mandarin language by making the experience fun and enjoyable. The 姐姐 facilitating the cooking class is very patient and sweet. The support team is also extremely approachable and friendly. Overall, this place is recommended to parents seeking a place for children to learn the Mandarin language and at the same time to have fun!

Comprehensive programme. Children were engaged all the time and had lots of varied experiences. Moreover, it’s conducted in Mandarin, giving children a language rich environment to practice their Mandarin. Highly recommended.

Activities are well planned and executed. Our 3-6 year old children had a great time with cookery and music and movement. The staff are friendly and approachable. We'll definitely plan another learning journey to The Early Chapter. Highly recommended!

The cooking session not only has sparked my children interest in conversing in Chinese, it also helps in their character building. They are independent now, able to take instructions and wanting to do everything by themselves. I’m grateful that their Chinese conversation skills has improved tremendously.

My son has attended since it's opening and from a non-speaking mandarin child, he started to slowly converse and even can argue with me now in mandarin! Even his preschool teacher said he has improved in both his vocabulary and confidence in answering in mandarin. Now, he enjoys his regular visits to the clubhouse and especially loves Jr. Chef.

This is my 4th month of subscription to The Early Chapter. I am really glad to find such an immersive Chinese learning club for my child.I stumbled upon this on Instagram and decided to give it a try. My child felt in love with this club after only two trial classes and even sings the welcome songs at home. This surprised me and showed me that the innovative learning approach of The Early Chapter is effective - through learning with arts, games and story telling, they came to possession of basic Chinese sentences and words in a joyful process. This is what I believe the best part of this club.What I recommend the most among all the club activities is the “Jr explorers”. Every week, the children are lead to do different scientific experiments, these fun little experiments teach them fundamental physics and enriched their knowledge. Such innovative learning process is so much different compared to the average tutoring. This made me further believe that The Early Chapter is a innovative and creative Chinese-learning club, it indeed make learning as fun as playing and is able to teach through fun. Now every Saturday, my son asks me when will I bring him to the club. Hope The Early Chapter continues to thrive and shine with more and more fun activities!
