Welcome to My Mini Mandarin Early Childhood Center! We are a bilingual childcare center located in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Established in 2020, our center offers a unique and enriching learning environment where children can develop their language skills and cultural understanding.

At My Mini Mandarin, we believe in the power of bilingual education and the importance of early childhood development. Our owner, Selby Moe, is a passionate advocate for language learning and cultural exchange. Selby, originally from Minnesota, spent six years living and working in Beijing, China. During her time there, she developed a deep appreciation for the Mandarin language and Chinese culture. Inspired by her experiences, Selby founded My Mini Mandarin with the vision of creating a nurturing and immersive environment where children can learn Mandarin Chinese while fostering their overall growth and development.

Our center is designed to provide a warm, safe, and stimulating space for children to explore, learn, and thrive. We offer a comprehensive curriculum that integrates both English and Mandarin Chinese languages, allowing children to develop their language proficiency in both languages. Through engaging activities, interactive play, and cultural experiences, we aim to cultivate a love for learning, a strong foundation in language skills, and a deep appreciation for diverse cultures.

Our dedicated team of experienced educators is committed to providing high-quality care and education for each child. They create a supportive and inclusive environment that encourages curiosity, creativity, and social-emotional growth. We understand that each child is unique and has their own pace of development, so we tailor our teaching approach to meet the individual needs and interests of every child.

At My Mini Mandarin, we value open communication and collaboration with parents. We believe in building strong partnerships to ensure the best possible experience for each child. We provide regular updates on your child's progress and offer opportunities for parent involvement, such as cultural celebrations, parent workshops, and family events.

We are excited to embark on this bilingual journey with your child, providing them with a strong foundation in language skills and an appreciation for different cultures. Come join us at My Mini Mandarin Early Childhood Center, where learning is fun, diverse, and full of possibilities!

Our Philosophy

My Mini Mandarin is committed to creating a safe, caring, and loving learning environment where children can grow physically, emotionally, intellectually, and socially.  We want to help you in raising caring, confident, and considerate children.  It is our goal to focus on the development of life skills and social emotional skills. 

My Mini Mandarin is dedicated to supporting families by providing open communication and encouraging parents to be as much of a part of the program as their children.


It is our belief that dual language and cultural learning is a vital component to a child’s development and growth as a global citizen.  We incorporate dual language learning as a core part of our curriculum and daily learning.

“Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can; there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.”
