My daughter attended the mandarin program at Jump Immersion School from Pre-k 4 - 1st grade. We had an over whiningly positive experience and the school quickly became a second home to my daughter. She received an excellent education, became fluent in mandarin ( it is not spoken at home) and was given the emotional support needed during a challenging period of her childhood. We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the school and their staff. This is a hidden gem in the Westfield/Scotch Plains area.
We have been a part of the Jump family for 2.5 years now and it is the best choice we have made for our daughter. As parents who neither speak Mandarin, it was a worry of ours that our daughter would not be able to speak with her own grandparents. Our daughter is 5yo now. She is now able to speak, read, & write in both Mandarin and English and communicates with her grandparents beautifully. She even understands all her math, science, and history concepts in Mandarin! Jump is a compassionate organization and really get to know your children’s strengths and weaknesses on an individual basis. It is a high-quality education mixed with a whole lot of engaging, fun activities for the kids as well as for parents!
We've been fans of Jump for 2 years now. Immersion is the best way to learn a language, and it's not scary for kids. We don't speak Mandarin at home, and we as parents are even learning a little. It's just a great way to learn for kids in this young age. I'm confident that this will set them up for success in later years. The academic curriculum is incredibly strong but most of all the teachers are so warm and nurturing.
The staff is what really sets Jump apart from others. While I loved our prior daycare facilities, this is much more like a school. The Jump team is responsive to any communication, proactive in anticipating students' (and parents') needs, and flexible to unique circumstances. They transitioned seamlessly into high quality virtual programming with materials that we picked up every few weeks to supplement the live online learning. We've been back in person since September, and their safety protocols have kept my kids safe and engaged - I'm just so thankful for the Jump team this year.
They have a great before and aftercare program as well, with a mix of activities and unstructured play. The summer camp is incredibly thoughtful with the combination of fun and intellectual activity - my girls loved the space weeks. And back pre-COVID they took them on really fun field trips. For two working parents who wanted their kids in a challenging yet nurturing environment, Jump is the perfect choice.
