Good Morning and Goodbye Circle Time

This is a time when we come together as a class and greet each other. It is an important opportunity for the students to speak individually in a safe and inclusive atmosphere. In addition, we sing songs that help the
children learn the alphabet and get them started on Phonics. We also let the children express their personalities through dance so that they can build their confidence. Through a variety of speaking activities, we hope that each child can find their own voice.

Physical Education

Since our school is conveniently located near a park, we will be taking the children there sometimes. During this time, the children will be playing games that will help improve their English skills, while having fun, and of course improve their gross motor skills.

Speaking

The goal of speaking class is to teach the children realistic English skills. While we will always be speaking to the children in English, we must help them develop their own speaking skills so that we can communicate equally with each other. Each term we will start with basic vocabulary and grammar and build on these throughout our time together. Especially during this time, we will only let the children communicate to us in English. Although this might be difficult at first, eventually the
children will become more confident in speaking and will be able to speak more freely in school. Native or nearly-native speakers will also learn correct grammar and standard American pronunciation. Even native-speakers make grammar mistakes as children, and we will be there to guide them and help them learn how to express themselves clearly.

Reading

Level 1: Students are introduced to phonics sounds.
Level 2: Students will learn how to read 3-letter words.
Level 3: Students begin to read difficult words, containing blends and
              long vowels, as well as "Sight Word Readers."
Level 4: Students begin to read beginner level books.

Writing

Level 1: Students learn how to hold a pencil and make straight and
              curved lines.
Level 2: After building this hand strength in Level1, students begin
              tracing and writing letters independently.
Level 3: Coordinated with our phonics reading class, students learn to
              write beginning and ending letters and short vowel sounds.
Level 4: Students learn how to write larger words that contain blends
              and and long vowel sounds.
Level 5: Being able to spell a large number of words, students begin
              learning grammar and writing their own sentences.

Theme Study

We have several theme topics throughout the year. We will introduce the children to the world of science by teaching easy to understand ideas. We will talk about the weather, body parts, the five senses, textures, an d even start a garden with the kids. Our main focus is to teach the children vocabulary and show them elementary science concepts.
We also want the children to become aware of the world around them and try to communicate this awareness in the English language. The children will learn about moods and emotions, good manners, families, jobs in the community, transportation and street signs.

Music

During this time, we will teach the kids different songs, dances, rhythm with castanets, the do, re, mi scale and even how to express themselves through music. We want our
students to not only love, but appreciate music, and we feel that our music program will help them achieve this.

Story Time

Everyday we carefully choose stories that connect to the theme of the month. This is an integral time when we ask our students questions about the story and help them
learn new vocabulary and grammar. Using the books, we want the children to learn to empathize with the characters and to realize the importance of positive behavior.

Life Skills

While English teaching is our main focus, at this age, it can not be our only goal. We also work on helping the children learn manners that range from sharing to sitting quietly to learning when to separate play time from study time. In addition, since our students are also here for lunch time, we help them improve their eating skills and even teach them the importance of cleaning up after themselves. Beyond these basic skills, we aim at creating an environment in which we celebrate the differences of others and encourage our students to see how various cultures are dependent on each other, and through this understanding, our students can begin to appreciate the world that exists beyond our walls. These are all essential skills that the children will need at every phase.

Arts and Crafts

In our school, arts and crafts is not just a time for the children to produce a great work of art, but is a time for the children to develop a wide variety of fundamental skills. These skills include for Little Sprouts, learning how to color how to paint and how to glue. Furthermore in Big Sprouts, how to use scissors, how to fold and how to mold. Not only will this help them cultivate important skills, but it can help them have confidence in their own creativity and expand their imagination.

Math

It is never too early to introduce children to math. Our introduction includes teaching shapes, counting, sorting and grouping, writing numbers, and patterning. During this time, we want the children to begin thinking about numbers in English and learn how to organize and sort simple colorful items. For those who are good at math, we will teach addition and subtraction according to their progress. We respect each child's individual ability and fully support their potential.

This fee is fixed for all students; it's not prorated for the number of commuting days.
If you live more than 8km from our school, the bus fee is double the regular fee.

    Please answer the questionnaire online.
  • Step2.
    After you pass the initial screening, we will email you the necessary information you will need to transfer the 11,000yen entrance exam fee. Please email us a picture of the receipt.
    If you are considering sending your second or third child to Learning Tree, the examination fee will be half the usual price (5,500yen). We are now accepting new students for our new Little Sprouts class starting in fall term, so please plan and start the process in advance. Often, parents feel that they can send the second or third child anytime. However, if there is too much of delay, we may not end up having a seat for them.
  • Step3.
    We will schedule a day for you and your child to visit our school.
  • Step4.
    You and your child can join the class for one hour and feel the warm, loving, organized classroom environment we have in place. At this time, we will also explain our school system and policies and we will see if our school and your child are a good fit for each other.
  • Step5.
    We will issue a certificate of admission if both the school and parents agree that sending your child here is the best for their future.
  • Step6.
    Once the certificate of admission is issued, please go through the entrance procedures within two weeks, otherwise, the certificate will expire.
