Montessori Kinder

3 – 6 years
3years – 1st grade

We have a new Montessori kindergarten class for 2022!

Our class serves up to 18 children from 3-6 years old. We strive to offer a Montessori experience in line with the standards set by the Association Montessori Internationale: an uninterrupted 3-hour work cycle offering a full range of Montessori materials in the areas of practical life, sensorial, language, mathematics, and culture well as access to our rooftop outdoor space.

From the first day of class, we work to instill two primary values:
  1. This is “our classroom” and we must care for it just as we do our homes.
  2. We are all friends and we help each other.

We will employ these values to strengthen and grow our classroom community. Eventually, the children will be able to run the class independently. As Maria Montessori said, “The greatest sign of success of a teacher is to be able to say the children are now working as if I didn’t exist.”

As always, at Ryozan Park Preschool we celebrate diversity and inclusion in everything we do. It is never too early to educate for empowerment. Graduates of our Montessori kindergarten show self-direction, independence, and a sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers, and their environment: all qualities that prepare them for the next stage of education, whether it be Japanese elementary or international school.

Schedule and Events

Classes and times are subject to change. Please discuss details for days off and events with staff. Evacuation drills, nutrition education, height and weight measurement, and birthday parties are also held monthly.

Pre-Corona we used to regularly hold networking parties, workshops and lectures for office members. We haven’t re-introduced these on a regular basis yet, but keep an eye out on our Facebook page where we post notices for events.
