Preschool Cubs

18 months – 3 years
18 months – 3 years

Our full-time play-based preschool program has been created to nurture each child’s innate desire to be curious, kind, independent and robust.

Native English-speaking teachers are supported by Japanese hoikushi to teach English through art, music, science, culture, dance and lots of laughter. A lean towards a Japanese structure in class makes for a smooth transition into Japanese kindergarten. The class is capped at 18 students. Enrolment includes coworking membership for one parent or guardian.

Schedules 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.
