PlayThrive (Mandarin Immersion)

PlayThrive Mandarin-Immersion After School (中 文 沈 浸 式 课 后 辅 导 班) is located on campus. We educate the whole child while practicing their Mandarin language skills. We are here to complement your child’s educational experience with explorative play, social emotional learning and project-based learning. We believe in a student-centered approach where children are active participants in their own education and are self-motivated by their passions. Here, children are empowered to learn about themselves, others, and the tools to shape the world. Save the dates for PlayThrive Virtual Tours on 1/25 and 2/22 5pm. Please email to sign up for a tour. You can view the presentation below to get more information on the program.




Odyssey Preschool (Mandarin Immersion)

Odyssey Preschool is a Montessori-based, Mandarin immersion program. It is a child-centered learning community committed to respecting the unique personality, gifts, and development of each student. We promote a culture that fosters kindness, curiosity, and cooperation. Our goal is to cultivate both independence as well as an awareness of our global interdependence.  At Odyssey, we reflect the cultural diversity of the peninsula throughout our curriculum, especially in foreign language offerings. Students enrolled in the Odyssey Preschool location at Redwood City receive priority enrollment in the Mandarin Immersion K-5 program as long as they reside within the boundaries of Redwood City. Odyssey in Redwood City hosts tours every Friday at 11am. To confirm your attendance at a tour, please call (650) 727-2306 or email
