Set in a modern, secure, brick building designed by leading architect Masaharu Seno, Tokyo Children’s Garden is located in a quiet, residential neighbourhood in Higashi-Gotanda. A short walk away is a leafy avenue named one of Shinagawa ward’s top natural spots as well as Ikedayama Park, where we often take students to play. We are also only one block from Nemunoki Garden, the former home of Empress Michiko.

Just a 10-minute walk from Gotanda Station, we are also less than a 10-minute drive from Azabu, Hiro-o, Azabu-juban, Shinagawa, Osaki, Shirogane, Meguro, Ebisu, and Takanawa. Our drop-off and pick-up arrangements are flexible and the school entrance is easily accessible by car.

At Tokyo Children’s Garden, we want to provide a beautiful environment for children to enjoy beautiful experiences. That is the reason our school occupies an entire floor, of 300 square meters. Our stunning open activity room with spacious balcony is bathed on four sides by natural light, while our library is a cosy room featuring another outdoor space. We also have a multi-purpose room for focused group activities, workshops, or for use as a gym.


Parental support

The most important people in children’s lives are their parents, so it’s of the utmost importance to us that parents feel completely confident that their children are receiving the best possible education. We welcome parental involvement.

Each day we provide students with a healthy organic lunch and send parents a daily journal by email. Detailing the activities, social interactions, and development of each child, this material is easy to access and read. We also send a weekly email to parents detailing the conversations the teachers had with their child during the week. We hope that, by providing this information, we will encourage parents to support and further their child’s interests at home.

We offer easy access by car to numerous locations in central Tokyo, parking spaces outside the school, as well as flexible drop-off and pick-up arrangements. We also provide after school programs and extension classes, giving you greater flexibility.

Through weekend events and workshops, we offer parents opportunities to learn more about education or take part in fun activities with their children, in order to provide as much support as possible to families.
