4 to 7 years
We like to keep the pace of this session upbeat! We introduce very basic words with songs and movement, as well as a fun and varied range of visual aids and toys.
The entire session is conducted in Japanese BUT our teacher is expressive, outgoing and fully bilingual. We have a great approach to teaching and pay close attention to each child's needs.
- Greeting song in Japanese
- Theme songs and famous Japanese children's songs
- Theme-related games
- Snack-Time - Children practice words like "Itadakimasu" and "Gochisousama deshita", plus other related words used during meal times.
- Craft time
- Reading time
- Goodbye Circle
We start with basic themes involving the children so that they can connect mentally with the concepts we are teaching in Japanese. These then branch out to the people and environment around them. We also integrate parts of our preschool monthly theme into the class to improve the children’s overall learning, but this is transfer into Japanese.
