Shuang Wen Academy Network (SWAN) helps students from varied social, economic and ethnic backgrounds develop proficiency in Mandarin Chinese, and acquire a greater understanding of Chinese culture, so they can become better global citizens in an increasingly competitive and demanding international environment.

While providing early language learning opportunities that take full advantage of both traditional and innovative teaching techniques, advanced technologies and strategic partnerships, SWAN seeks to share its best practices and replicate its success.

What we offer

Preschool Ages 2 - 4

The preschool curriculum is based on the philosophy that children are competent and self-driven learners who benefit most through exploration. Every day, children of all ethnic backgrounds learn both English and Chinese, developing bilingual proficiency.
