Cultural Events

Participating in and celebrating Chinese traditions and holidays is a vital component of the Chinese language learning process at Stepping Stone. We actively engage in festivities for each traditional Chinese event, providing our students with a deeper understanding of Chinese culture while ensuring they have a tremendous amount of fun.

Moreover, at Stepping Stone, we embrace cultural diversity by commemorating various cultural events. These celebrations play a crucial role in nurturing respect and open-mindedness among our students towards different cultures. By acknowledging both our differences and shared interests, we aim to foster unity and a better understanding of diverse perspectives. Additionally, each holiday celebration contributes to creating cherished memories for our students, shaping their happy childhood experiences.
