International Kids Academy is not your typical international school. It offers small kids, preschool and kindergarten classes taught by select, native-level English speaking teachers and equally skilled, personable Japanese co-teachers.
The school’s teachers encourage students to learn through exploration and positive-motivation (and not by coercion), as well as through team-oriented ideals that teach students to identify and value the strengths found in them and their fellow students. The school uses TPR (total person response) and pair teaching methods.
The curriculum is focused towards phased, progressive English immersion. Students in our program learn as if they were attending school in an English speaking country but with the facility of Japanese teaching assistance.
The school’s phonics system helps students connect alphabet letters to their respective phonic pronunciations, so that from an early age, they will be able to read and enunciate familiar as well as new words they encounter. This phonics system consistently helps students realize higher achievements in class and reduces the need for secondary, remedial assistance.
A variety of programmes are available beginning with the small kids classes for kids aged 1.5 -2 years; the preschool and kindergarten day (10-3 pm) programmes as well as a number of afterschool programmes for local elementary school-attending children.
