Our Philosophy

_0091.jpg

Along with a high academic standard of Preschool and Kindergarten activities and curricula, we at J's aim to make our school family-like and fun in a very special way, a home outside of home. Our dedicated teachers go the extra mile helping children individually excel in their strong areas and progress in weaker areas. Our goal is for children to love being at J's, from the warm welcome at arrival time to pick up time, enthusiastically showing their caregiver what was learned that day. We strive to make their first experience of school happy and enjoyable.

As their child grows, a parent has many different concerns for them, from worry over adjusting to being at school for the first time to academic progress and taking entrance exams to elementary schools. The school founders, being parents of grown children themselves, understand and appreciate parents' feelings and concerns. We communicate regularly, offering advice, working together to make sure each child gets the attention, care and nurturing they need. A solid trust and teamwork between the school staff and families has grown over the years; we have built a school we are all proud of.

J's believes children should develop in all five domains: socio-emotional, cognitive, physical, creative and intellectual. We believe they are all interrelated and are all equally important when it comes to child development. That being said, we take planning our curriculum and classes very seriously so we can encourage development in all 5 domains. Our school believes in a balanced curriculum where both play-based learning and teacher-lead classes should be used. The teacher lead classes are usually during academics where literacy and numeracy are taught; play-based learnings are usually during centre time and free play.

True to the Eastern philosophies of Japan, which emphasize virtue, justice, courtesy, faith, and wisdom, we wish to make our school a place for instilling and practicing these principles.


J's の教育理念

個性を伸ばす指導

J's International Schoolでは一人一人の発達にあった適切な指導により「好奇心」「興味」を引き出し、楽しい環境の中で「もっと知りたい、もっと学びたい」という子供たちの意欲を引き出すカリキュラムを提供しております。

幼少期の子供は一人一人個性豊かで学ぶペースや力を発揮するタイミングがそれぞれ異なります。生徒全員を型にはまった一定の平均レベルで教育するのではなく、生徒一人一人の個性とレベルに合わせた密着型の指導を満足にできる様、少人数制のクラス構成にこだわっております。

また、アカデミックだけではなく生徒一人一人の将来の活躍にも大きく影響する人間形成にも重点をおいております。自立心を確立し、自分の意思をはっきりと表現できる能力を養い、生徒一人一人が精神面での成長・発達ができる様にサポートしております。

J'sのインターナショナル教育

J's International Schoolでは、生徒がバイリンガルに言葉を話せる教育をするだけではありません。世界の伝統や文化について学んで理解しながら、国際人としてのアイデンティティを確立させることを目指して独自のカリキュラムを組んでおります。
