Yu Ying Learning Center was established to provide a safe, supportive and stimulating environment to meet the learning goals of our students.  Our Preschool and After school/Summer Camp/Weekend classes provide structured academic and planned activities  as well as selective two-way immersion Mandarin Chinese program.

Students learn language through educational and interactive methods.


Yu Ying Yuan is our preschool/day care division providing bilingual (Mandarin/English) program serving children from ages 2 to 6 years old. 

Our goal is to enrich all aspects of a child’s growth, from social, artistic, physical, to emotional development. With the guidance of well-qualified teachers, children have the opportunity to creatively explore their environment, acquire tangible skills, and develop a strong sense of self-esteem.


We offer year-round preschool programs to meet the needs of your family.

After School STEAM/Mandarin Program

For after school program, we also provide a wealth of elective enrichment classes and fun activities such as Fine Arts, Chinese folk dancing , Martial Arts, Coding and Computational Thinking, Circuits & Movement and Yoga.

We focus on creating a nurturing environment, and believe fostering trust between students and teachers is the foundation of a productive learning experience.  Our bright classrooms and outdoor play area is an ideal place for fun and social activities.

Our Mandarin Chinese program is designed for both Chinese speakers and those with no prior Chinese language experience.  Research has shown being a bilingual speaker has positive effects on a child's intellectual growth and brain development.  We are fast moving into a more globally integrated world, and learning a second language will open doors to greater opportunities and prepare your child for the future ahead.  In addition to learning language, we assist students in developing other capacities including critical thinking and problem solving skills, while immersing them in a joyful setting and stimulating curriculum.

Parents Testimonies:

The program you offer at the center is really very effective. We had sent Nolan to a Chinese class and another Chinese after-school care before but he did not learn much. However, he was able to converse, read and write in Chinese so quickly after enrolling at your center.

Even though it is not spoken consistently in our home, I have been very happy at how much my son has learned in the short half year that he has been attending Yu Ying.
