Preschool & Kindergarten (Hibari & Tsubame Class)

Year Old : 3-4 / 5-6
Schedule: Monday - Friday
Time: 9:00 Am to 1:00 Pm

Although it may seem like fun and games to preschoolers, the curriculum we follow is packed with educational elements. Games abound that teach pre-reading skills like phonemic awareness and letter and sound recognition, hiragana, basic math concepts and hands-on science exploration.

The program is also to direct, involve and encourage children to discuss and work on their ideas as a group. We focus greatly on language art and interpersonal skills. Many short field trips and fun events are scheduled for an engaging and interactive learning environment.

We are a dual immersion institution, classes are conducted in both English and Japanese. Half of the day is in English and the rest in Japanese.
