Springbridge International School offers Japanese or Mandarin immersion preschool for children ages 2.5 through 4. Children develop socially, emotionally and physically as they join their classmates in both learning activities and free play. Communication is encouraged as children increase their knowledge and understanding of themselves and the world. Children begin to prepare for prekindergarten as early language and math concepts are developed.  Our carefully integrated curriculum introduces students to materials they will revisit in later grades and creates the ideal environment in which the bilingual brain can form its unique neural paths.  The benefits include greater memory, multitasking ability, concentration and sorting, among others.  It is here the children take their first steps with their future classmates in our accelerated kindergarten through grade 8 education at Springbridge International School.
