Little Tiger LogoThe Little Tiger Program is a full Chinese immersion preschool and early elementary program. We are a licensed child care program for children ages 3-7 in Austin. Our students learn Mandarin Chinese through our theme and content-based curriculum. The Little Tiger Program covers language arts, math, science, art, practical life and PE — all in Chinese!

The Little Tiger Program is affiliated with Chinese with Meggie, a Chinese language school founded here in Austin in 2006. In response to parent requests and to expand our offerings to the community, the Little Tiger Program opened its doors in 2015. We are adjacent to Chinese with Meggie on our shared campus in beautiful Hyde Park.

Our little tigers attend school Monday through Thursday from 8:30-3:30pm with additional programs for afterschool and Friday care. Our school calendar runs from September to late-June with summer programing available.

Little Tiger Program teachers are all native Mandarin Chinese speakers and have extensive classroom experience. Most of our staff have master’s degrees in foreign-language education and expertise in early childhood education. In accordance with Texas state requirements, all teachers have completed a CPR/First Aid course and undergone a criminal background check.

We found an amazing treasure, Little Tiger! Austin is lucky to have such a wonderful Chinese school. The teachers are loving fun! My child has been a few months and has really taken to learning a 3rd language. It has been such a wonderful cultural experience for us as a family and are grateful they have opened their doors to us.
