English Studio International Kindergarten
English Studio International Kindergarten is a fulltime English Immersion Kindergarten program. They teach three grade levels for children aged 3 to 6 years of age, and we follow the Japanese school year. Their aim is not only to build a solid based of English language communicative ability but also to nurture confidence, compassion, independent thought, self-expression, open mindedness and an inquiring mind. By nurturing these traits we are helping set our students along a path of life-long learning.
In 2004 school began to work on creating a more comprehensive program for 3 and 4 year old students based on a combination of our in-house EFL kindergarten curriculum and the curriculum used at Tokyo International School. This project was completed in 2004 and in 2005 we started teaching 2 and 3 hour Pre-kinder classes using this new curriculum. Due to the wonderful response we received school decided to start a fulltime English Immersion Kindergarten ”ESIK” based at the Meguro school at the beginning of April 2006.
The International Kindergarten is a three year English Immersion and Enquiry Based Learning course. Language arts, social studies, nature walks, science, Maths, storytime, music and Physical education are all part of the curriculum.
