Welcome to Axis International Preschool and Toddler House!
We provide toddlers (age 1-3) and preschool students (age 3-6) the opportunity to experience a fun curriculum in English under the instruction of qualified and experienced staff and native English-speaking teachers.
Students benefit from the individual care and attention they receive.Our low student-to-teacher ratio means that teachers are able to watch the children quite closely for behaviors and actions that may be problematic. We also have the special assistance of our own school nurse. If you have any concerns about your child's health, please discuss them with her.
Students joining Axis International Preschool undergo an assessment to determine their English ability and to confirm which class will suit their skill level. Doing this allows the children to feel more comfortable to start their English language learning experience. Once they are comfortable, we hope that they will then enjoy the program.
All levels are welcome as the preschool program caters from complete beginners to native speakers. Young children are particularly receptive to natural language acquisition, so the more they are exposed to a language, the more they learn. Axis International Preschool aims to provide children with an environment and activities that promote this language learning in a fun way.
Axis International Preschool follows the MotherGooseTime curriculum from the U.S.A. Through play, stories, music, arts and crafts the children are prepared and encouraged to develop in all areas (physical, emotional and spiritual). Our comprehensive language program enables and motivates students to develop and improve their English speaking, reading, writing and listening skills.
The monthly program changes each month as the theme changes.
Once children complete the Preschool program, they have two options. They may go back into the Japanese educational system, or continue with their education in English at many fine International Schools.
The Axis International School program begins when children are 5 years and 11 months. Depending on availability and the child's readiness, preschoolers may join Grade 1 when they reach this age. Even for students who plan to return to the Japanese education system, it provides them with a very nice boost if they can do the Axis International School Grade 1 program before starting Grade 1 in another International School.
Graduates from the Axis International Preschool program have successfully entered the following schools:
