OV Chinese Program

Program Description

OV Chinese school program is located at Ocean View School, and is a part of Albany Children’s Center. OV Chinese serves children in kindergarten-third grade, providing high quality school-age care after the elementary school day.

This program involves teaching the students listening, speaking, reading and writing in Simplified Chinese characters. We have several Chinese levels from beginning to level three. Students who start from kindergarten in this program will go through all four levels based upon the book Zhong Wen.

Ocean View Chinese also has many activities to support the students in developing Chinese art and culture. Students will learn Chinese poems, Chinese songs, Chinese dance, and relate every holiday with art projects involving Chinese words. Every Chinese New Year, we have our performance for all of the parents and our community in the OV Multipurpose room. Additionally, we participate in two Chinese New Year Celebrations at the Albany Community Center and the Albany Theater. At the end of each school year the Ocean View Chinese program will participate in the school-wide talent show.
