Why a Bilingual Nursery?
It makes your child “smarter” without forcing times tables and Satre down their throat. All the evidence now points to the cognitive advantages a bilingual upbringing can afford your child: from improved creativity, analytical thinking, strong concept formation skills, emotional well-being, your baby will benefit from the bilingual approach.
It’s no secret that China is important. With a population of over 1.37bn people, Mandarin is the most widely spoken language in the world. And the Government appears to have finally realised this with its announcement that Mandarin is to be offered on the national curriculum, so why not give your child a head start in a language that could change his life?
Who Are we?
Cenn John, father to a lovely two year old boy, set up Hatching Dragons because he believed that parents and their children, could and should be getting more out of the early years and so drew together a team that is second to none: a team with a former Chairman of Ofsted on the board and a pedagogical director has over 30 years in the early years. Hatching Dragons now run playgroups, 4 hour creche environments and are setting up nurseries throughout London.
