BACKGROUND

Yau Yih Yun was established by an eager and active group of parents who wanted to give their children a wider accessability and exposure to the Cantonese language and culture back in 1987. Now in its 24th year, it has grown considerably since its inception and now has a qualified and committed teacher and committee of enthusiastic parents.

A development from the Yau Yih Yun arose as the pre-schoolers became primary schoolers. The WCSCC offers Cantonese classes on Sunday mornings if you have older children.

We look forward to seeing your child at an session or two in the future.
