Dear Kspace Community,
Plans for the Christmas period start earlier every year! As they say, if you can beat 'em, join 'em! Kspace has released its Parent & Child Christmas and New Year run down PLUS some really special workshops and new classes for you...so please take a look at the attachments and book early to get a head start.
November 26th: Active Birth Workshop.
Are you expecting or do you have any friends who are welcoming a child soon? Tokyo Mothers' Group Admin., doula and key speaker, Stephanie Kawai (UK), will be joining forces with Kspace to offer help and advice to all mums and partnered couples who need a bit of encouragement and support.
December 4th: Christmas Flower Arranging.
We've created a great workshop for you to get Christmas started at Kspace....parents can bring their child and enjoy some quality bonding time, or mums & dads can enjoy the workshop alone. Enrolled children 5 years+ are also welcome to take the workshop without an adult.
December 7th, every Thursday: Mums' Exercise Classes!
Don't wait until after the indulgence of Christmas to think about getting in shape and having fun. Join fitness expert and personal trainer Kristina Dos Santos at Kspace and go into 2018 feeling great! Prenatal Yoga and Mums' Exercise available:
December 16th onwards: Kspace Christmas Parties start!
In the run up to Christmas we have back-to-back fun of course and all themes will be online soon, but we kick off our Christmas party schedule from Saturday 16th. Starting with visits by Santa and festive fun across all age groups for our Saturday School in the child-only course, we also have a Family Circle Time that you shouldn't miss!
Our next Emergency First/First Aid course is on the web and there are lots of workshops online so please take a look here:

Hello Kspace community!
Are you all enjoying your break? There is a lot of activity going on at the school this week as many of the team
still continue to work away, adding to the interior. As you know, we have some spooky fun coming up and I will be updating you about your calendar highlights in a longer mail tomorrow.
Our resident artist-supreme, Adam Bowden, is working on a super secret and very exciting project right now. I have promised not to share any details, but I can tell you that we will be welcoming an addition
to the ‘family’ at some stage..possibly early next year. We know that you’ll all love it!
We have also created some fun colouring sheets to fill up some time at home. Although we are know for encouraging freedom of artistic expression at Kspace, ‘colouring in’ also has a valuable place in building skills. Whilst colouring parents can discuss colours and shades, shapes, names of areas of the body, counting/numbers and family names with your child. Older children can be encouraged to build story lines based on images, and offer imaginative background about characters. There are learning opportunities everywhere! Tiny children’s ‘scribbles’ and very important precursors to shape and letter formation and holding/gripping brushes, pencil and pens builds the small motor skills that are essential for later work. As importantly, when we sit and colour or doodle we can experience a really pleasant sense of calm and it’s very relaxing and helps us to find our flow. Recently, doodling has become a real trend for adults and the stores are filled with doodle books!

If you enjoy scribbling/painting and penciling in our colouring template of Kokomo and his family, please send us a photo this week of the finished masterpiece! If you don’t wish your child to be featured of course you can just send the photo of the drawing, and we will add them to our Facebook page!

Halloween Calendar Highlight Special Parent & Child Party
TRAVEL – A – KOKOMO Kspace News from Abroad!
12th September 2017
Hi Kspace Community!
So many children are having a great time with us in our summer camp, but we also love keeping in touch with our Kokomo friends who are on their travels. It’s great when parents write and send us photos from abroad, so if you go away and your child continues to want to rock their Kspace T-shirt, or take their Kokomo toy overseas, please send in and we’ll post it!
Three Girls, Three Countries!
Today we want to say thank you to one of our French mummies, Constance. Her three daughters went through the school and stayed with us for a very long time. They started in the Parent & Child programmes and worked their way through the International School, with the older girls Eloise and Alice graduating into Tokyo International School.
We said a sad goodbye to their amazing family at the end of term as they have returned back to France. Our little Red Butterfly student Sophie would like to say a loud “bonjour” to all her Kspace Parent & Child friends and her fellow Butterflies. Her mummy says she is missing you all, but you can see that she is enjoying herself back in Europe! These photos are taken on Sophie proudly rocking her Kokomo T-shirt whilst she was in Spain – and now the girls have hade great educational experiences in Japan, Spain and France.
We will miss you all and thank you so much for being with for a very long time!
