Class of 2021

This week, CISC’s Step Ahead Program graduated its second class of preschoolers with great pomp and circumstance – well, they got certificates, anyway.

Eight students completed the year of bilingual Mandarin/English preschool fully prepared for kindergarten.

Starting in September, many of them spoke no English at all but progressed through the year learning all the skills essential for success in school.

Physical health, well-being and motor development; social and emotional development; approaches toward learning; cognition and general knowledge; and language and communication are the five areas of focus of school readiness for this program.

Parents, caregivers and siblings attended the graduation ceremony where students sang a song in Chinese, performed a skit in English, and impressed family and friends alike with their knowledge and maturity.

Way to go class of 2021!
