Our Mission

Tokyo Children’s Garden is committed to creating a continually evolving learning community for everyone. We strive to provide a joyful and relaxing setting for children to think, create, and reflect to give them the foundation for leading a meaningful and rewarding life. Tokyo Children’s Garden seeks to bring together and integrate the wonderful aspects of both Japanese and western culture and education. Our aim is to support children to grow into confident, creative and open-minded members of society who strive to make a difference in the world by providing the best possible environment for children and their families. 

 


 

Our philosophy

Our philosophy


Our Philosophy: A Love of Learning

Independence and Trust

Encouraging children to be independent gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment in their own achievements. Ensuring that our students know they are trusted to make their own decisions helps them to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills and creates an optimal learning environment for all of our students.

NURTURING ENVIRONMENT

We provide a nurturing setting where children feel safe and confident to explore, investigate, and express their creativity. Children and parents are greeted everyday with a smile from our dedicated and passionate teachers. When children feel safe, they can play in a way that develops their determination to keep trying in all situations. 

Reflection

Reflection is an important part of the learning process for both children and adults. By documenting the children’s learning and having it available and visible for them to see, children can reflect on what they have experienced and learned to solidify their own understanding by communicating their ideas and thoughts to others.

Our Curriculum

We provide a stimulating, bilingual English and Japanese environment where children can explore, investigate and express their creativity while sharing their thoughts and ideas with their friends and teachers. We strive to create a learning community where children feel motivated and inspired to find knowledge for themselves. Our curriculum is child centered and based on the interests of the children.  

By giving our students opportunities to express their creativity and imagination, develop their critical thinking skills, and the confidence to express their own ideas and thoughts, we hope to give them a solid foundation and a love of learning that will last a lifetime. 

We believe if children are exposed to the best environment, they will learn naturally and meaningfully. We strive to provide an environment which encourages children's own interests through play and gives them a solid foundation for emergent literacy and numeracy skills as well as a strong base in social emotional and physical development.
