幼児クラス (0才から5歳までの未就学児):就学児クラス:




Preschool Class (0 - 5 yrs): Primary School Class:
There are 4-6 children in this group.
Activities include art crafts, picture book reading, development activities, nursery songs with moves, experience with nature, traditional festival activities, Hiragana, Katakana.
It is 'Play with Mummy/Daddy in Japanese' time. We hope the children to feel that playing in Japanese is fun. If they enjoy it, they will want to learn more.         
For reading and writing, we don't allocate a specific time to do it in class.
As each child develops differently (i.e.'good pencil control muscles' which can be developed through drawing and physical activities), the right time to start is different for each child especially in case of writing. We don't want to force it upon the child just because others in the class are doing it. It has to be enjoyable for the child to learn.

Class time: Toddler group is closed as of November 2015.
For children who are already in school. There are two classes. Thursday class accepts Reception - Year 2 children with bilingual background.
However, we would consider taking in younger children who can read and write Hiragana and Katakana.
Friday class is a mixed ability group with age between 4 and 10.

Activities include picture book reading, reading, writing, songs, vocabulary expansion through various school subjects, traditional festival activities, various games using Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji.   Games such as Karuta cards, board games and Kanji bingo are very polular for the prize for winners!
We occasionally use textbooks from Japan. However, our main focus is nurturing children's own interest in learning Japanese.

Class time: Thrusday from 3:40 to 5:10 PM. Please enquire about Friday class times and cost.

A monthly fee is payable at the last session each month for the following month.
