This kindergarten welcomes foreigners with nationalities from Australia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Trinidad and Tobago, Sri Lanka, and Kenya as regular staff, and conducts "English play" for children from 0 to 5 years old during childcare hours. There is also an international class that teaches only in English. It is a vertically divided childcare style for children from 3 years old to 5 years old, and it is called "Star Class". While consulting with the teacher in the room, the chief foreign staff who has more than 20 years of experience in nursery school supports the curriculum and production of the star class.
Star class goal word is "Reach for the Stars". This English proverb means "to have high hopes", and the star-class children encourage each other to do their best in whatever they do. While having fun playing, we will strengthen your English ability and watch your child grow. We strive to create a star class that makes you want to go every day.
Of course, I will teach English to children who are the treasures of their parents in the international star class, but English is not the goal, I would like to use it as a tool. They will also develop their English skills and grow socially in a lot of fun experiences. Star class friends want to improve their English ability and want to try to speak English by themselves. .
There are various difficult parts in vertical childcare, but using the difference from the general public as a seed, we will change the way of thinking and the way of doing things. We ask the advanced students to take the lead and help them understand and help. After explaining in English, I always check their understanding in Japanese. Then have them repeat it together in English. In order to be able to provide education that matches the level, we divide the children into grades every week.
Older children develop their care and expand their minds by helping their younger friends. The seniors who have been promoted are having their new kindergarten friends help. It's a bit difficult at first, but as it continues, everyone gets used to it quickly. I'm going from younger to middle school, and my friends who wanted to help me a lot last year will continue to help me a lot.
If your child is interested in English and wants to improve their English skills, I think the star class childcare style is second to none. If you would like a tour or detailed explanation, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email. It's okay to enter the park in the middle of the day.
