These two things are our ideas. We want to help to grow children who can really engage in our global society, which is seeking for international characters now. These are the motivations and purpose of this establishment.
In preschool, kids spend 5 hours (8:50～14:00) a day with English. In circle time after coming to the school kids learn English basics which are greetings, the date, weather etc. By acquiring these, they can communicate smoothly with any foreigners upon first meeting.
In addition to the English lesson, like grammar and reading, they have math, science and social studies lessons in English using textbooks. Even children who are learning English for the first time can begin to understand when the English teacher is speaking by 2 or 3 months. And soon they begin to communicate in English with foreign teachers before they even realize.
By honing not only listening and speaking but also reading and writing they can develop all English skills. Thus they being able to acquire an English proficiency test within their preschool life and give their own speech at the graduation ceremony.
After English lessons they have a Japanese lesson for 1 hour (14:00～15:00) which means they learn Japanese, math, science, and social studies by Japanese language. They learn things they will memorize at primary school or junior high school. In addition to studying they have physical education or outside play, so spend relax time.
Next, After school lessons begin after they go home school from 16:00. Students, who go to other kindergarten and primary school, come to learn English like a clam school. On Saturdays we have Saturday school ,which means students spend the whole day (9:30～16:30)in English. Students who go to their schools on weekdays, come to Oblige and spend a whole day in English on Saturday.
This is the Oblige international preschool overview. If you are interested in our school, and for your kid’s English, please come to our school. We are looking forward to hearing from you.
