Little Bear International’s school philosophy is child-centered. The school aims to provide its children with the best educational environment, and to focus on tapping into and teaching the whole child, which includes social and emotional development before academic pursuits.   Its teachers teach with an approach that understands that children are curious, eager to explore and learn, competent and resourceful, ready to cooperate, and full of wonder and delight.
Little Bear offers full-time preschool programs serving children from 3 years old to 6 years old in a total immersion cultural setting. Classes are taught by native speakers of English with early-education credentials and are assisted by a Japanese teacher(or a bilingual teacher). Little Bear offers an American style classroom setting, with low teacher to student ratios. Teachers assist in bathroom training and also teach other healthful habits such as proper hand washing, how to thoroughly brush teeth and many other good habits that will continue with children well into the future. The school program also incorporates Sign Language, Music, Visual and Creative Arts, and Physical Fitness. The teaching curriculum used is specifically designed for pre-K children using techniques and material based on research and analysis by childhood education experts. Some of the educational studies that have influenced its program include Creative Curriculum, Montessori and Starfall.
Programs offered include the Preschool program (5 days per week 9:00 to 14:00 ); Afternoon program (1 TO 5 days per week 14:30 to 17:30); Jr. elementary program (3 days per week from 16:00 to 17:30) Monday, Wednesday, Friday; Sr. elementary program  (2 days per week, Tuesday, Thursday 16:00 to 17:30); and the Saturday program – 10:00 to 12:00).

  1. My daughter attended this school for almost two years and they are absolutely amazing. They teach so many things on top of just education (which they do an excellent job at). They foster an environment based on respect, community and there is never the “bad kid” syndrome. Kids are kids and have good and bad days. The things she learned from Little Bear have transcended into her education back in the States. They tailor the teaching around each individual child’s ability and learning style. No being held back because another child may not know the things your child knows. They are engaging and truly love teaching (which seems to have been lost in a lot of school systems). I highly recommend this school.

  2. Good Morning,
    I am inquiring about enrolling my 3 year old daughter. She will be 4 in July. What are your prices and do you offer transportation to and from Yokota Air Base? I look forward to hearing from you soon.
    Thank You!!
