I hear good things about Mon Sheongfenomenon wrote: ↑Oct 6th, 2014 10:52 amHere are two in Markham.
Mon Sheong Chinese School at Pierre Elliot Trudeau High school - http://www.monsheongcs.com/admission/
Yip's Chinese School (Brimley and 14th) - http://www.yips.com/chi
I think school board ones don't start until 4 years old. York Catholic Board starts at age 4 and York Public Board starts at age 5.

Like most things regarding education, it depends on the teacher. Last year, my son's Mon Sheong teacher didn't even learn the kids' names and focused too much on writing assignments. It took forever to do the homework and my kid just tuned out and even had to redo the final exam. This was only grade 2 level!

We are in the same situation, so I know you don't have to be attending the board's day school to do Chinese school. They have a signup day every year where you just go register and pay. It says you can even register during class hours.

Thanks...just taking a look at it. Timing wise, I think I would rather pay more and go on a Saturday (PET location). It's very tiring for a kid to go to school then go to Chinese right after.shopper_of_things wrote: ↑Oct 10th, 2014 11:30 amWe are in the same situation, so I know you don't have to be attending the board's day school to do Chinese school.

Here was the info for the current year (next year will probably be similar):

Cantonese versus Mandarin, it's a complex debate - we ended up sending ours to Mandarin school. Resistance is futile, plus your child can learn Cantonese at home.Kwyt88 wrote: ↑Oct 4th, 2014 4:54 amI was thinking about sending my son to Chinese (Cantonese)school in the markham area. Do u know of any good ones. I live close to markville but willing to drive. Can u give me a good idea about pricing, location and if you think 3 years old is too young. We speak a bit of Cantonese at home but English more often. But would really like home to learn more. I would love for him to learn mandarin but is it worth sending him if we don't even speak mandarin?

The YRDSG language programs have both Cantonese and Mandarin on Saturdays but your child must be 5 during that school year. At 3, I didn't know there are places that offers language class. Wow.
