1 – 2 year olds: First Steps to Group Activities

The students learn rules of being in a group of other students. These very young students show rapid growth because of their age and their ability to absorb any new information. We do not believe 1 or 2 year olds cannot do anything because of their age. The curriculum draws out their potential to learn by developing the student’s individual personalities. We are looking forward to see the students say “I did it!”, sharing their experiences with you. The program is filled with activities such as story reading and musical games that will help diversify the emotions of the students.

3 – 4 year olds: Roots of Learning

This is the time when students are most curious towards any topic. Starting this time, the students will learn the power of working together with friends and peers. Competition and cooperation is the most effective way to accelerate learning. This class focuses more on words and numbers, and learning how to read and write hiragana and numbers. Through games and fun activities, the students will be able to absorb as much information as possible. Again, this is the most important stage of child development where personalities start to form. By teaching how to make friends, make up after an argument, and achieve goals, we plant the seed of development.

5 – 6 year olds: Gain Much Experience to Grow the Mind

This class focuses on how to think before acting, and the ability to communicate, think, and come up with a solution. We provide an entertaining but thorough education for the students.

In the studying sections, we teach the basics to writing, reading, and mathematics from all directions for the most efficient learning. During childhood, they directly connect experience and knowledge to confidence. Confidence is a strong power in a sense that it allows the student to utilize the new information into action, as well as it pushing the students into trying their best, without giving up.
