New Campus in El Cerrito
Since early 2019 with an ever-increasing number of families on our waitlist, we began searching for a location for a new preschool campus that can support new families with the same high-quality program but with upgraded facilities. After a long and extensive search lasting nearly two years, we finally found the perfect location at the end of 2020. Here, we aim to build a brand new campus that will best fulfill our goal of having a high-quality play-based preschool with Chinese immersion program.
In November 2021, after 3 rounds of submittals and revisions, we received approval from the City of El Cerrito as confirmation of its support of this preschool program. In June 2022, after another 3 rounds of submittals and revisions with the City of El Cerrito, we obtained building permits and in October 2022 started construction. Construction is anticipated to be completed by May 2023 and we expect to start enrollment at this new campus in Summer/Fall 2023.
