Beyond Montessori trilingual Chinese preschool, located in the city of Dublin, is an extension of our founder's previous school (also a trilingual immersion preschool). We offer a multicultural program that has been striving for a revolutionary linguistic emphasis to enhance its unique educational philosophy. Since 2000, the previous school has been operated by two teachers of vastly different cultural backgrounds. That being said, each teacher has undergone Montessori training and shares the same vision: to provide a multicultural preschool program that includes multi-language immersion.
The two were not alike in their cultural background, but they hold the same vision and merged a Chinese and English cultural literacy program after finishing their Montessori training. Though they started with no preschool students, these two feverish spirits were ready to open and extend their vision to Fremont families with young children.
Within a short period of time, this multilingual preschool program blossomed and nourished the families and children they served. Less than two years passed, and they opened another Fremont location that continues the same educational pattern. Through the years, these two locations grew in cultural literacy and reached a mature state. As time went on, Spanish was added to the thriving bilingual program, enhancing the flavor of this multicultural environment.
Over a decade of practical experience and self-introspection, a strong philosophy was established that grounded the beliefs of cultural literacy and humanity on a daily basis.
With the liberal application of teaching materials and by providing the best formulation of 80% Chinese and English and 20% Spanish curriculum, the fruit of this labor has been marvelous. At Beyond Montessori immersion preschool, our mission is to expand upon Dr. Montessori’s methodology by showing respect for its classical intent, while also encompassing the multicultural and multilingual society in which we live. We know that the support of many grows our family tree, which is rooted deep. Alongside our families and community, our journey is one of endless possibilities.
