Preschool Curriculum

Curriculum

The preschool curriculum and schedule is similar to Japanese preschools in Japan and oriented to the culture. The curriculum,  which is from 9 AM to 1 PM is structured and follows a routine that is age appropriate for each developmental stage. We emphasize structure, routine, and independence for all activities in each class.

 

The activities held in each class are prepared based on the children's developmental stage. They are also developed so children are challenged and have the opportunity to learn new skills and acquire more knowledge.
