The Regular Program is conducted in English from Monday to Friday.
Age: 1.5 ~ 6 years old
Time: 9:00a.m ～ 2:00p.m.
Our typical, daily schedule is as follows:
-Morning Yoga at SkyCrest Gardens
As the weather permits, we will ask all our children to go our garden area to do our morning yoga exercise, and to experience nature’s beauty: The smell of the air, the feel of the wind, the sound of birds and more!
Every morning, we have Japanese lessons for an average of 20 minutes.
In the Japanese lesson, children learn not only speaking and writing skills, but also comprehensive skills such as literacy, numeracy, and critical thinking, using materials designed in-house. We also cover Wafugetsumei (和風月名), Haiku(俳句), Shodou(書道), and more, to learn about Japanese culture.
- Life & Sciences
Life ＆ Sciences is SkyCrest’s unique and original program. We believe that life is harmony with nature. And in this program, we provide high-quality education modules in natural science, physical science, and the basic functions of cells and molecules, which are inherent in all living things. Additionally, in this program, we provide children additional chances to focus on “I” by using existing global materials: For example, we use German educational books for certain activities. We believe that children who take this program in their younger years will know more about “who I am” and have more respect for other peoples, places, and environments. This unique program is supervised by doctors who hold Ph.D. degrees in Medicine and Psychology.
- Inquiry-Based Learning
At SkyCrest, we offer an Inquiry-Based Learning Approach as the core of our curriculum, for all age groups at our school. This is fun and one of the best ways to help engage the children’s desire to find out things they wish to know, though their own efforts and initiation. As part of this program, we will go to beaches, farms, aquarium and many other special locations to learn more with joy. The location will vary and depend upon the topics that children wish to cover.
-Outdoor PE Activities
We provide lots of fun and enjoyable, outdoor PE activities for our kids. This is because we believe that outside play time is important to make our kids stronger, inside-and-out. The nearest park is the Seseragi-park, and we will go there a lot for our outdoor activities. At our gardens, children play kick ball, go treasure hunting and more! We also take our kids on many fun adventures to places such as farms, aquariums, and many others! Some of our outdoor PE activities are supervised by medical doctor who hold MD-PhD and our program is structured to build up and improve mathematical performance and cognitive skills, such as spatial awareness abilities, probability measurement and judgment.

Morning Extension: 8:00a.m.~9:00 a.m.
