Poppins International Pre-School
Poppins International Pre-School (PIPS) is a world class educational facility purposely established to cater the highest quality education and care in a safe, positive, nurturing, and intellectually stimulating environment for children ages 1 to 4.
PIPS endorses meaningful learning opportunities in an environment that promotes independence and critical thinking; it aims to facilitate skills that will support our student’s development for future higher learning.
Poppins International Pre-School is committed to supporting the student’s optimal development by promoting a positive school culture, providing an effective instructional programme based on Poppins’ edu-care philosophy, applying best practice to student learning, and forging a lasting collaborative partnership with the rest of the international community in Tokyo.
The school offers a unique curriculum giving children from 12 months an opportunity to engage in a variety of activities and learning experiences in a safe and secure setting. Poppins International Pre-School utilizes a British curriculum that is patterned after the Early Years Foundations Stage (EYFS) framework. The EYFS is a comprehensive framework that sets the standards for learning, development, and care for children ages five (5) years and below.
Children spend portions of the day working and playing together in a mixed age group and are separated into specific groups for circle times and focused activities. School maintains very high teacher to student ratio (approx1:3) to ensure quality interaction with children (our student number never exceeds 18).
PIPS takes great effort in documenting children’s projects and activities. Documentation is an effective means of showing children that their work is valued, it helps maintain parent’s awareness of their child’s developmental progress and learning experiences, and it serves as a great evaluation and assessment instrument for the teachers.
School offers three distinct classes based on the child’s age:
Clouds Class: For children ages 12 months to 2.5 years.
Stars: For children age 2.5 years to 3 years.
Super Star: For students age 3+
(when the child reaches his/her 4th birthday, he/she will graduate from our programme)
Poppins International Pre-School offers before and afterschool childcare services from Mondays through Fridays.
