My daughter has been attending LBL since she was 8 months old. I was initially nervous and not sure how it would work out since no one in my family speaks Mandarin, but I was equally excited for her to have an intensive cultural experience and exposure to another language. Our experience has far exceeded anything I could have ever dreamed of! Tiffany and the other teachers have embraced my daughter as a member of the LBL family and she practically leaps out of my arms each morning, she just LOVES going to daycare! Every day is filled with adventures and learning. They go to the park, the library, music class, the farmers market, the little farm and more. Tiffany plays the piano and they sing songs, read books, and everything is an opportunity for learning something new and creative play. Most importantly for me, the teachers are all truly warm and loving people. I am also very particular about nutrition, and they are very conscientious about my wishes and only feed her healthy, organic meals, as well as a big variety of foods. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this daycare-- This is truly one of the most special daycare experiences a parent could hope for!
Little Bears Laboratory (LBL) Mandarin Bilingual is a terrific home based day care. My wife and I have been taking our son to LBL since he was just six-weeks old as we prepared for our transitions back to work. The director, Tiffany, was very kind and accommodating in working out a part-time schedule in acclimating our son to the new environment. A native Mandarin Chinese speaker, Tiffany is fluent in English and has been attentive to the language needs of both the parents (my wife is a native Mandarin speaker; I only speak English) and the language skills of the students in her school.
There is a separate room for infants to nap as Tiffany leads a Mandarin lesson, facilitates music/singing time or enjoying the backyard and neighborhood walks. In addition, they only use Eco-friendly products to clean their facility and toys.
My wife and I are very happy with the care LBL provides to our son and recommend LBL to anyone interested in a Mandarin language focused daycare.
