A Brief History of Little Panda Mandarin Preschool (LPMP)

Little Panda was founded in January 2003 as Durham Chinese School. The school really expanded in numbers of enrolled students and in space from 2007-2010. Then, in 2011, we decided to focus on Chinese language and culture education for preschool-age children only. Therefore, Durham Chinese School became Little Panda Mandarin Preschool (LPMP). Currently, LPMP has a morning half-day preschool for the spring and fall semesters, and summer camps from June to August with morning half-day and full-day options.
