The preschool classroom focuses on the educational aspects in preparing the student for formal school. The school emphasizes the ‘safety of the nest for babies’ to those first tentative steps of exploring past the nest for older children. School surroundings are designed to open the child’s mind to the world that await.
The school philosophy is “learning through hands on. Classes and activities are age-appropriate.
The Creative Curriculum, lesson-planning system is completed by their staff of teachers, with the experience from the USA and combined with the Japanese Youchien (kindergarten) style that makes child’s learning process stimulating and safe.
