Designed and built with care, filled with creative elements


Bridging the learning gap for children 0-5y

Hello and Nihao! I am excited to offer this livestream class to supplement homeschooling during COVID-19.  Having earned my bachelor’s degree at UC Berkeley and a master’s in education from Mills College, I have devoted more than 15 years to working in language immersion education.  The Nihao Preschool and Daycare is the family business where all the magical learning and inspirations happen to support this creative curriculum!

My teaching style is described as “musical, wacky, engaging, and full of laughter!” In addition to touching all key basis of the state learning standards, another goal of this class is to teach parents how to bring this curriculum into the home.  I would absolutely love and strongly encourage the adults to join this class.  Let me do all the heavy lifting while you enjoy the show!
