About Us

At Japanese Schoolhouse, we offer a safe and secure place for your children to play, learn, and grow with other children and adults.

We structure our program to be responsive to the needs of each child. The main goal of our program is to have fun, improve social skills and prepare the children for kindergarten and academic success.

Childhood is such a short and magical time; we try our best to make each day meaningful and special for each child.

Kindergarten Preparation

Our goal is to create a fun environment where children have early experiences that help them feel positive about learning. As they grow and become curious about their world, the encouragement of their exploration becomes the foundation for their future love of learning. In fact the information they gather during their early years lays the foundation for academic success.

At Japanese Schoolhouse, children learn their ABCs, numbers, colors, shapes, and both the Japanese and English languages through a variety of exercises including art projects, playing games, singing songs and lots more.
