BILINGUAL LEARNING: “We are the only Chinese immersion language school in New Jersey. The concept of the school is language acquisition and cultural awareness, and this can lead to universal understanding,” says Joy Zhao, Director of YingHua Day School. Shown is a group of students at the school.

YingHua Day School in Princeton and Lawrenceville Offers Strong Bilingual English-Chinese Curriculum

“‘Ying’ means English, and ‘Hua’ means Chinese. Together, ‘YingHua’ means blossom, the essence of a plant, which is the best name for a Chinese-English bilingual school like YingHua Day School (YHDS),” explains Joy Zhao, director of the school.


FAMILY FURNITURE: “Custom work is our specialty. Someone can come in and say they want 2-door shelves in this wood, this color, painted or stained, with this hardware, and this height, and we can make it for them.” Phil and Owen Cane, owners of Cane Farm Furniture, are proud of their company’s reputation for high quality early American and Shaker-style reproduction furniture.

Early American and Shaker-Style Furniture Are Specialties of Cane Farm Furniture

“It’s just like going to a farm in the country. You feel you’re in another world,” says a Cane Farm Furniture customer.

In fact, a visit to Cane Farm Furniture in Rosemont is a trip to the country and to what was once a poultry farm. Owner Phil Cane’s father, Charles Cane, started the poultry farm in 1927. Phil grew up on the farm, and the family lived in a stone farmhouse dating to 1822. The house still stands and is currently rented to tenants.
