Program goals: Language Skills & Cultural Awareness Students will acquire Mandarin Chinese naturally through all kinds of fun activities and cultural celebration in the target language. Learning Skills Students will build a solid foundation and good studying habits for their future study in Kindergarten through standards-based curriculum and hands-on lessons. Social skills Our joyful, respectful classrooms instill a love of learning and exploration, and a sense of shared community.
Our curriculum is delivered through integrated Thematic Units and it encompasses all the skills and understanding necessary for academic success and social & cultural growth. Our hands-on activities and various “learning clubs” enable teachers to address the needs of each student on an individual basis.
Parent Orientation CLLC strongly recommends all parents to attend our Parent Orientation Meeting in order to be informed of all policies and procedures prior to your child’s enrollment. This will also give parents the opportunity to meet the teachers and have any questions or concerns addressed at this time.

Based on State Regulations, we must follow the procedures listed: 1. Only medications prescribed by a licensed physician may be administered
2. Medication must be given to the school in its original prescription bottle showing the child’s name, date filled, and directions for use. 3. The parent/guardian must complete and sign an authorization form, specifying time and amount/dosage of medication to be given 4. Parent fully understands the school is extending an extra service and will not be held responsible for missing any medication doses. Child Health Records Current information about any health insurance coverage is maintained by parents at all times and updated as necessary. Parents are responsible for all updates to health immunizations and emergency contact information. If a child has been diagnosed by a professional with a special health need, such as allergies or chronic illness (asthma, hearing or vision impairments, diabetes, etc.) the school must be provided with a doctor’s note AND instructions on how to handle the child’s special health needs.
Emergency Care If your child requires immediate medical attention and must be transported to nearest hospital, persons specified on the emergency card will be contacted. A staff member will accompany your child to the hospital and stay there until the contacted person arrives Blood borne Pathogens To ensure our compliance with the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administrations (OSHA) regulations, we will administer the following First Aid Procedures:
1. Teacher will use the personal protective equipment, which includes latex gloves, and may include a face mask and/or gown to prevent the risk of exposure to any blood borne pathogens 2. Blood stained clothing will be placed in a sealed bag and labeled “Biohazard” to ensure it remains sealed until it is taken home 3. Parent/guardian will be contacted at the time of the incident 4. Should your child be exposed to another child’s blood, both parents will be notified and advised to contact your physician for a follow –up.
If a tsunami or hurricane warning is issued before the opening of school, we will be closed. If either occurs during our hours of service, school will remain open until all children have been picked up.
Monthly emergency evacuation drills will be practiced with the students.
Protection for Children *Please understand that OSHA requires us to make every effort to ask you about your child’s health information due to the risk of exposure to blood borne pathogens (disease-causing germs carried by blood, such as Hepatitis B and HIV)
