Become fluent in English gradually!

Each child has a different learning style and interests. We strive to create an environment that fully meets the needs of children by considering what they want and need. We want them to fully experience the importance of sharing fun with friends in group life and the joy of devoting themselves to something on their own in their daily lives.

Acquire English skills naturally
while having fun

Our hope is that our students will develop their own ideas and individuality while feeling the joy and fulfillment of seeing and experiencing things from various angles.
With dedication and care by experienced teachers, we aim to create a program that allows children to reach the maximum potential in skills necessary for this age group (social skills, group living skills, athletic skills, thinking skills, imagination skills, etc.).
