Since we trust her (Teacher Caroline) guidance with our son, we trust the staff she has hired to grow the school and I have had no problem, I get day of incident reports if my son gets hurt even as little as a scratch, Teacher Christine is great with the kids and I have had only positive experiences with Chih Yin, she responds to all of my questions promptly. I would recommend touring the school to see if it's a good fit for you, you won't regret it!"

"My son start attending Language Garden in March and within months his mandarin improve tremendously. He was very reluctant to learn the language when I introduce mandarin to him. The nurturing and encouraging environment at Language Garden helps him to grow and learn so much the past few months. His writing skills improved and is capable of communicating with me in Mandarin. Ms Caroline not only teach but care for the well being of my child. I am so glad to find a school where he enjoys and look forward to go to everyday."

"This school was established by an exceptional teacher. Ms. Caroline not only helps kids excel, but also makes kids love school. She truly loves kids and cares for them. Having a good first impression about school is so important for kids at this young age. I cannot trust my daughter any more than in Ms. Carolin's capable hands."

"I feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful preschool with such a nurturing environment. This school is taught in both English and Mandarin Chinese, which is exactly what my family was looking for. We do not speak Chinese at home, and we are so pleasantly surprised when our kids try to communicate with us in Chinese. My older daughter started at this school when it first opened in December 2013, and always looked forward to going to school. She's moved on to kindergarten in public school now, and at least once every couple of weeks she tells me she wishes she can go back to Language Garden!

I feel that her time at this preschool has prepared her well for the transition to kindergarten..."

"Caring staff, few classrooms to foster a familiar environment, very flexible with their children and parents. On top of that they are very accommodating to kids with allergies. What is often lip-service for other institutions is being lived here every day. I feel my kid is safe here with his allergies and special needs.

Their curriculum is versatile and offers a nice combination of Chinese and English lessons across the two classrooms.

All the teachers in this facility are extremely nice, approachable and caring, to the point were they feel part of the family.

Last but not least, come by and experience the kids and their well-behaved attitude and you know they are in good hands here."

"We love this preschool, all three of our kids have had a wonderful experience here. My oldest son went here in 2012 when it was at a different location and Caroline was his teacher, when my second was ready for school in 2015, I put him in this bilingual preschool as well. Now my youngest daughter is attending this preschool, she is enrolled in the Chinese and English and her Chinese has significantly improved. We don't speak Chinese at home and because the school has sparked a curiosity in her, she requests Chinese words throughout the day and asks, "how do you say this in Chinese?"... I highly recommend them!"

"Our children loved the school and teachers. Because of Caroline and her great teaching and support staff, our children developed strong academic and social skills. Their Chinese language is so good (reading and writing during kindergarten, for example) that they are able to start school in Taiwan no problem (even a grade level ahead).

The staff is so kind and caring - always taking time to listen to a story or calm frayed nerves, and leading the children in creative play and learning activities.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this school and staff to any family looking for a great Montessori experience and bilingual education."

LG is one of the best Mandarin Bilingual preschools on the east side, they just moved to a brand new classroom facility, large bright windows that allows plenty of light into the rooms... Children receive a Montessori style education here, shelves of learning sections are stocked with various fun puzzles and toys. Kids have a regular schedule here every day so they know what to expect during transition time...

All in all, I really like this place, and I think it's a good place for parents who are seeking a proper bilingual education..."

"My boys are currently enrolled in Language Garden and have been there since January 2014, shortly after the school opened. For us, this has been one of the best decisions we have made for our kids.

We are a bilingual family and really try to speak Mandarin at home. Having the split Mandarin and English classrooms really provide the boys with a great foundation in Mandarin while preparing them for our local public school kindergarten this fall.

For starters, the teachers are experienced, professional, creative and really pay attention to even the smallest details. I truly feel that Ms. Caroline and Ms. Henderson really care about and adore the children. They set a wonderful tone to how kids should treat one another and it really shows. I can't tell you how many times Ms. Caroline or Ms. Henderson pointed out something new and interesting in my kids' behavior or progress. They are calm and loving yet firm with the children. They are also great listeners and very open to suggestions and recommendations. Ms. Caroline and Ms. Henderson worked with us to come up with a plan to help one of the boys improve his fine motor skills when that became necessary. They also met with me to work out the best class placement for the boys when it became apparent that it would be best to separate them. I always felt as if I can go to them with any concerns and be heard and that they have the best interest of my child in mind. My boys feel safe and loved at school.

In addition to Ms. Caroline and Ms. Henderson, we also really like the teaching assistants, Ms. Chih-Ying and Ms. Perez. They are friendly and caring toward the children.

The classrooms are clean, comfortable, well situated and sunny. The teachers have done a lovely job creating an inviting space for both fun and learning. I love how the kids have plenty to explore everyday. The boys love to point out the new crafts or decorations on the walls at drop off. The playground, albeit a bit small, still allows the kids to have fun outdoor play.

One thing that is really special about Language Garden is how many fun and thoughtful activities Ms. Caroline plans for the children. From the Thanksgiving feast, Valentines' Day, to a spectacular Lunar New Year Party, the kids always have special activities to look forward to. Often times, the parents are invited and it is always a real treat. My boys still talk about the time when the Reptile Man visited and they got to meet some really awesome live reptilian friends!

In terms of academics, I must say that the kids are learning much more than I ever expected. My boys have a deep love for books and are extremely interested in natural sciences. Ms. Caroline and Ms. Henderson really feed their desire to learn with interesting lessons and hands on experiments. I am a huge proponent of letting the kids explore their own interests and giving them plenty of time to play while they are young. As an avid reader, I also spend a lot of time reading to my kids. However, imagine my surprise when one of the boys came home with a BOB book and began reading it to me. (I was thrilled when I found that he learned his alphabet but I did not expect that he would be able to read so quickly) Now both boys are reading Chinese books using the bopomofo system. The good thing is, I don't feel that the kids are being pressured to learn. Rather, I attribute their progress to the ability of the teachers to know what each child is capable of doing and encourage and teach accordingly. In our situation, one child needs plenty and constant challenges to keep him interested while the other requires a lot of gentle encouragement to continue to stay on task. The teachers are providing just what is needed in each case.

The boys are in separate classrooms and have formed some beautiful friendships with other children in their respective class. They are attached to their buddies and even remember which days their friends go to school and especially look forward to those days. My sons come home with all kinds of stories about playground drama and how they resolved a conflict (or not). It is fascinating to see how social skills are developed even at this early age.

We were looking for a place with great teachers, good environment and the opportunity for the boys to learn more Mandarin. But with Language Garden, we got so much more! The boys are having a blast, learning lots of important life skills and well prepared for kindergarten. We could not be happier with our choice."
