What Parents say about us 家长留言
My wife and I were looking for a bilingual pre-school. We did a lot of research and visited a lot of schools. During our initial visit, to NCA our daughter was allowed to sit in on a class and immediately participate. She loves to learn and even though she was a little shy, she was immediately welcomed by the teachers and the students. Signing her up was an easy choice. She's been attending for six months now and she really enjoys it. Her Chinese has gotten better each day, and she is excelling in her math and reading skills. She shocked me one day during our nighttime book reading by telling me she wanted to read the book to me, and she did. I highly recommended NCA for the curriculum and the opportunity of exposing your child to another culture. And the best part is picking her up each day from school, seeing a huge smile on her face and listening to what new words she learned on the drive home. -- John
We were looking for a good school for a while. Finally, we found this great school! My daughter loves her so much, during the summertime she always keeps talking about this school and how much she missing her teacher. She just can't wait for the back to school day;) We think this is the right place for her!

给孩子找一所适合的中英文幼儿园是我们一直以来的打算。 在这个基础上， 我们希望能够找到一所孩子喜欢，家长放心的学校。
第一天，Ethan正式入学， 有一幕让我们印象深刻。傍晚，我们来接Ethan放学。 当时是户外活动时间， 小朋友们在一边玩，一边等着家长来接。我们到了学校，看到嘉嘉老师背对着我们，站在那里，抱着Ethan。嘉嘉老师转身看到我们，笑笑地跟我们说Ethan一直哭着 想妈妈，就一直抱着。那一个场景让我们很感动。让我们感觉到这里的老师对小朋友的关爱不仅仅是工作，更多的是真心。也是那一刻，我们知道我们找到了对的， 可以信任的学校。
Ethan在NCA上学有半年多了。 他喜欢学校里的每一位老师。他也会告诉我们他在学校的生活。和孩子聊天中，我们可以感觉到他在学校里时间是开心的。小朋友每天都有一张报告单，让家长们可以了解孩子在校的表现和学习情况。如果小朋友今天表现突出，或是要特别注意进步的，老师都会和家长按时的 沟通。我们也可以通过一个家长秘密群组里看到孩子们的相片和短片。每次可以看到他们的生活记录，心里都很欣慰。同时，也感激老师们如此细心，让家长有更多的渠道可以了解学校情况。我们有什么想法也可以无顾虑的和老师交流。有时候我也会请教老师一些建议。另外，我们非常欣赏学校处事的方式。有一次，Ethan在学校不小心撞到头了，老师主动地告知我们，并给我们一份正式的报告单。他们公开，坦诚的的态度也让我们对学校有更多一层的信任。
Friendly staff and a great place/environment for the kids to learn and play. It's been 5+ months since my son has been attending - my 3 years old has learned a lot and had so much fun, not to mention friends he has made that he talks about every day.
I am glad that we made the choice of enrolling my kid in this school, thanks NCA for taking care of my son.

If you are looking for a great pre-school that is not only top notch but affordable, this is it. Very bright and responsive staff that values education, has a strong curriculum, maintains high moral standards and cares deeply about the well being of the kids. On a day to day basis, the school keeps a clean, simple and very productive educational environment. They continually upgrade and maintain the facility. I know that my child is safe, engaged and happy to be there and it is a pleasure to drop him off and pick him up everyday.

Great school! Absolutely recommend. It's not just for Chinese language although preschool is the best time for kids to develop their language skills. I was so amazed at the level of advanced education that is taught here and my daughter is going to go into kindergarten with a terrific head start. Her teachers a wonderful and so is the administrative staff. This is just a very good bunch of people who are able to teach the kids in a way that makes learning fun. My daughter comes home and does homework voluntarily. Unbelievable! I sure hope it stays that way in the years to come. I would highly recommend this school to any parent. You will get a lot of value for your money. I have been so grateful that we found this school for her.
很棒的幼儿园！老师们都非常的Nice! 我家宝贝在国内呆了一年，只会说中文，所以我一直想找一家中英文的幼儿园，刚好有朋友的孩子也在这所学校，所以介绍给了我。去咨询的时候是Miss Cherry和Amily接待了我们，她们很热心很温柔，给我的感觉就是老师们会很真心的对待在这上学的孩子们，我可以放心的把孩子交给她们，跟我之前去过的一家美国连锁幼儿园明显的不同，那家的老师对孩子的态度很冷淡，感觉只是在做一份普通的工作，没有很care孩子们。宝贝刚开始上学哭了整整3个星期才适应，老师们都很温柔很耐心的对待他，中午会喂他吃饭，想妈妈的时候就安慰他，帮他度过了适应期。现在已经在那边上学有5个月了，英语能力迅速提高，也越来越Enjoy在幼儿园和老师小朋友们一起学习一起玩儿了，学到很多东西，这让我非常开心。另外，学校每天都会给家长一张报告，来记录孩子在学校里的情况，最可爱的是孩子们会在学校做很多手工，给家长带回家做纪念❤
This is a great school. My younger son just started attending. This is because my older son attended pre-school there before starting elementary school. I believe NCA has great teachers and a great program. This really prepared him for school. He was proficient in all materials covered in Kindergarten when he started already. In addition, he was exposed to culture and a 2nd language which I believe is great in development for children. They have fun at NCA and I would recommend it to any parent who is considering a pre-school for their child. -- Jim
I am very pleased with all the Teachers here. My son had a very special Birthday celebration in his class with his classmates, Teachers made a surprise with very cute birthday decorations.
I am thankful to them they are very patient to the 1st time kid. My son he is 2 years old and a half when he joined NCA, the first time in the school, of course, he being a cry baby but Teachers kind and patience with him special he not understand either English or Chinese-Mandarin. He has been to this school almost half a year of time he learns a lot of things. I am very like the education this school teaches, they are not just taught from a book, they also teach handcrafts which my son very interesting to this.
Also, I want to mention one more thing is I very appreciated the truth and honoring of the Teachers here they treat all the kids are the same. Why I have this opinion because I had a very bad experience from my cousin he went to the other Bilingual preschool before he got treating not fair. I truly appreciate all Teachers of NCA they take care, my son, very great, not because he isn't Tradition Chinese so he don't get fairly. I can tell he very love to go to NCA every time I ask him how he like he always have positive answer. I specialty thank you Her she always in the morning I don't know her name she very kind.
I definitely highly recommend this place, I will let my younger son join NCA too when he turned to 2 years old.
我的女儿Olivia在NCA已经一年多了。在这一年Olivia学到了很多知识而且还很懂礼貌.这都离不开每一位老师的细心呵护！我女儿Olivia经常告诉我她喜欢学校的每一位老师.特别是Wendy老师、Emily 老师、Cherry老师 她们都非常非常的友好！！今年我女儿Olivia已经五岁了本来她可以去上免费的Kindergarten 可是Olivia说她喜欢现在的学校不喜欢别的学校.那就只好随她了；）只要孩子开心钱都不是问题。而且能找到一所孩子喜欢的学校很不容易.我经常和我朋友聊起我女儿Olivia的学校和老师.我朋友她们都为我感到高兴给孩子找到这么好的学校！我也有介绍我朋友的孩子去NCA这所学校.她们的孩子也非常喜欢这所学校.如果有家长想要让孩子上双语幼儿园的我向大家推荐这所很棒的学校.

Me and my wife really appreciate the staff! The curriculum is very fun and educating for my 3 yr old son. Very surprised how much he has learned in just 1 month and would recommend this preschool to parents who not only want their child to be bilingual in Chinese but also have fun while doing so!!
Very impressed with this school. My 3 year old has been talking very early and he needed a challenge. I looked at many preschools and wasn't impressed with other schools curriculum until I found NCA. We are not Chinese so I was a little worried about that but the school was reassuring and welcoming. I wanted my son to learn a second language and potentially more languages throughout his grade school so I figure starting him early is better to help open his mind. Mandarin will be very important language in the future. I also feel the school is safe and thorough and my son also has so much fun and does lots of arts and crafts. I have noticed in a short time my sons attention span is growing and his reading skills at home have improved. Thanks NCA.

Started research on schools for my little guy before he was even born; went through the expensive Jewish temple school, trendy Montessouri school, and ended here. The first and the most important, teachers are all very loving. I can trust them with my baby daily, five days a week knowing he is happy and safe. Second, curriculum includes Chinese and English. It is totally okay if you are not Chinese Mandarin or Cantonese speaker, plenty of English only kids attend. Isn't it a bonus for your baby to be bilingual at such a young age though? Third, tuition is decently priced. After paying for the fancy preschools before this one, my kid is happiest and learned the most here.

My 3 and a half year old child is just finishing up week 12 here. She transitioned from an excellent in-home daycare to this school. After 3 days of teary drop-offs, she couldn't wait to go to the classroom to see her friends. She made several friends immediately and kept telling us their names and what they did that day, including who got time-outs (she included). This month they are learning colors in Mandarin and USA landmarks so she's been pointing out all colors at home. I had bought a book called "Wonders of the USA" and very first time reading it, she pointed out Mount Rushmore, Golden Gate Bridge, Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon.
Main objective we had was for her to learn Mandarin and immerse in social setting that she could not get from an in-home daycare. I noticed in last couple months from her tumbling class she listens to the instructor more, stands in line, waits her turn and raises her hand when called upon.
Why we chose this school:
1. We like the layout of the school, from the check-in at the lobby to the classrooms, the part that sold us was the court yard in the center of the building for the children to play in.
2. They are a year-round school that suits our 9-5 jobs. School holidays are same as federal holidays, no development/teacher training days or state holidays or holidays that we don't get off since it is a pain to arrange backup.
3. Price is affordable and reasonable.
