Philosophy of Children’s World
We believe that…
children are entitled to discover themselves socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively in a positive and stimulating environment.
children thrive and learn best when their interests are captured.
Through diverse fun activities, children develop:
– curiosity, initiative and independence social skills and respect for others
– imagination and creativity
– love and respect for the family and the community awareness
– experience traditional Japanese cultural events and learn Japanese songs and more (preschool)
To firmly integrate the component of green and help foster the environmental awareness among children and their community.
