PROMOTION VIDEO

PARENTS’ VOICE

Initially, I was very worried about whether my child would be able to fit to an English environment, as this was the first time I had ever entrusted my child to a nursery school. Once enrolled, my child adjusted to the class very flexibly thanks to the cheerful and kind teachers and the bilingual nursery staff who support them. I thought that the school lunch and school bus service were very friendly to working mothers.
In addition to regular lessons, after-school and seasonal camps are available, so there is no need to worry about finding other lessons or childcare.
On Performance Day, they perform a musical performance on a large stage that includes singing and dancing. The performance was so lively that we couldn't help but watch.
They do a science presentation in English at the graduation ceremony, and I was so impressed!

LAURUS SPECIAL PROGRAMS

For those who normally attend Japanese-based nursery schools or kindergartens, we also offer attractive programs that external students can participate in, such as Saturday School, which students can attend only on Saturdays, After School, and seasonal events during long vacations.
