Hatching Dragons Stay & Play: Mandarin Music & Shadow Puppetry

We’ve been running playgroups since before we opened our nurseries. Back in 2013 and 2014, Li Jing and Cenn, our Founder, would traverse East London with a large carryall, an ipod dock, some rudimentary materials and a lot of hope to convince parents and families that learning Mandarin could be fun, musical, imaginative and engaging for children.

From those humble beginnings, our first nursery school and daycare centre in the Barbican was born and now it is the mainstay of our activities and central to our pedagogical approach. We employ Mandarin Music Time and Chinese cultural activities throughout our day.
