A Note from Our Head Teacher
Hi! My name is Anny So. I came to Canada from Hong Kong since 1997 with my family and I am proud to call Vancouver my home ever since. I grew up learning English as my second language and converse daily in Cantonese with friends and family. I dedicated my entire career to Early Childhood Education working with children from infant to preschool age and I enjoy doing it everyday. I have been a Licensed Early Childhood Educator for more than 10 years and I currently hold the ECE, Infant & Toddler, and Special Needs Licenses. I have been a Cantonese Teacher since 2012 and I now run the Cantonese programs at Fun Cantonese Basic.
From being a ECE teacher, I learned that each child is unique and talented in their own different way. My goal is to provide a non-traditional and age appropriate Cantonese learning experience to cultivate the attitudes, habits, and appreciations that will enable the child to explore, question, and discover the Chinese culture. The goal of our program is to provide the basic knowledge of the Chinese culture which inspire their interest to pursuit on their own.
