"Youle is founded by a team of educators and parents. We share the hopes and aspirations of nurturing in the young ones a love for learning, a growth mindset and confidence to navigate this ever-changing and increasingly bicultural world. We believe this is best done when children are primed for learning in their early years.
With our diverse range of expertise in language milestones development, whole-brain training and early childhood education, our mission is to help stimulate our students’ interests in Mandarin from early childhood and endow them with the best foundation to bring their Mandarin learning to greater heights."
Raymond Chua, Founder & Director
Raymond has been immersed in the Singapore education scene since 2005, with stints in MOE and various private settings. He obtained a Masters in Education from the National Institute of Singapore in 2013, specialising in Teaching and Curriculum, and have also studied Chinese Thought and Culture at Peking University. He is proficient in Mandarin, Early Childhood, as well as Gifted Education.
A huge proponent of using an Immersive and whole-brain approach for effective learning, Raymond set about creating a rich, bilingual environment for his child when he became a father in 2014. This is where the idea for YouLe Mandarin arose! Overseeing the curriculum at YouLe, Raymond wishes to offer like-minded parents an environment where Mandarin learning becomes enjoyable and enriching.

HAPPY PARENTS & STUDENTS
Youle really believes in learning through fun activities and doesn’t force the kids to do rote learning which definitely would put kids off. I highly recommend Youle's mandarin enrichment classes for kids ranging from toddlers to preschoolers and anyone who is looking into having their kids speak good and proper Mandarin.

At Youle's chinese classes for kids, the Chinese language come alive with multi sensory stimulation, inspirational Chinese poems, flash cards, drama, song and dance, hands on creative activities for the children to stay engaged throughout the session.. To be honest, I myself am renewing my love for the language!
Evangeline (Shiloh's Mum)
Our daughter Camille has been attending Youle Mandarin since the age of 17 months. At first we were unsure whether a child could benefit from the enrichment classes at such a young age, but after seeing the results, we wish we had started even earlier.
Youle Mandarin has helped Camille’s development in many areas beyond Mandarin skills. The mandarin classes have boosted her confidence in interacting with other children and adults. She has also shown increased appreciation of music, dance and storytelling.
We recommend Youle Mandarin wholeheartedly to every parent. We will be enrolling Camille’s newborn brother as soon as he is old enough!
