The school aims to develop children’s capabilities gradually by heightening the sensitivity they have with images and fantasies and by observing what children are individually good at and at the same time challenging them to try to do everything while providing encouragement and model example.
In everyday child-care, we try to be modest and humble to be a model for children to imitate by watching animals and plants which live in severe nature without being extinct, which can be a help for us to think how people should live.
The school philosophy is as follows:
“The early childhood period has great influence over the child’s personality development. In such an important period., opprtunities are provided for the child to be close with nature, and to develop an open mind and a feeling of kind consideration for others through the cultivation of aesthetic sentiment.
Our program encourages the enhancement of each child’s own imagination, patience and concentration, thereby promoting creativity,enthusiasm, sociability and a sound mind and body.
By first broadening our minds and hearts to a deeper understanding and recognition of other cultures and societies,
our ultimate goal is to nurture an awareness that we are all inhabitants of the earth and that we must share and protect it”
