THE CURRICULUM

sm_about

Our curriculum is designed to be an asset for various ages of children (2-5 years old) to grow up in the environment with diverse ages. All of our programs are based on Dual Immersion. Every class is conducted in English. It, however, has a scheduled period in Japanese for each day. Our daily activities consist of assembled various forms based on the following educational categories.

1.  Humanity and Interpersonal Skills

Gaining self-esteem and confidence requires self-consciousness in their interrelationships. Our teachers aim at providing a safe and positive environment for children to look into themselves and conceive the thoughtful reactions at various daily events of life.

2.  Dynamics of Creativity

We believe that children are full of great talent for creativity. To nurture a sense of artistic creativity, we believe, bring children to a range of exciting possibilities for developing their various skills.

3.  Multicultural Cognizance

It is reasonable that acquiring multicultural awareness can be well-arranged in an international school. Nonetheless, taking the fact as only one of the elements, we put an emphasis on providing various activities continuously with sufficient assistance. As we do so, we believe our teachers can help children to be aware of and appreciate their differences and knowledge in various cultures at school.

4.  Linguistic Development and Fundamental Knowledge

Linguistic development is enriched through all the conversations or short talks conducted in their classrooms and in any of the school activities. Each class holds Educational Time for children to learn the basics of knowledge through their own chores and learning activities.

5. Dual Immersion English-Japanese

A clear boundary – this is the primary factor for bilingual education. Our curriculum clearly determines the point of alternation of the 2 languages in terms of Time and Place. The bilingual lead teacher switches languages.
