欢迎所有对中文有兴趣，或者喜欢结交中国朋友的宝爸宝妈！Want your kids to speak Chinese? Are you a new parent? Want to meet other Chinese or Chinese-American new parents? This is a group for new parents who have a Chinese background, or are in mixed-ethnicity families. Everyone is welcome.
I started this group for the benefit of both the kids' language-learning and cultural understanding, as well as for the parents to make new friends.
We know that the early years in childhood learning are critical and permanent, so we want to encourage native-level language and cultural exposure. We also believe that parenting is a lot more fun with a community of other parents supporting each other with friendship and activities.
欢迎！This is an opportunity for new parents to meet each other, and provide their kids with Chinese-language play activities. Share/learn tips and tricks, and expand your network! Bring your kids' snacks and anything you want to eat/share. (Park at school across street.)
