Education

Educational philos

Child-Land Group offers preschools, after school care, and senior care facilities. By offering time for preschool children to meet the elderly, the elderly have a chance to acquire youthful energy from the children, and we also aim to educate the children to be more conscientious.

We have a total of 11 preschools in western Tokyo, Kawasaki, and Yokohama. Some schools also provide after school care for elementary school students. Each school provides lessons both in Japanese and in English. We provide an environment for children to learn English (one of the most widely used languages in the world) while maintaining their Japanese identities. We also focus on education so that they will be apt to succeed in the future.

Our Rearing Policy

  • Develop autonomy and the power of creativity through activities

  • Respect individuality and uniqueness

  • Promote a spirit of compassion

  • Heighten awareness of the world

It is very important to speak both our native language of Japanese as well as English as a common language in the world. We use the both languages for daily communication. Our native English speakers use English and our Japanese staff uses Japanese when needed. We would like children to learn both languages.

About English education

We use English daily at our preschools and after school programs to help children get ready for international society. We also work hard to help children maintain their Japanese identity. Children can develop English commucation skills natually through interacting with our staff. Your child might not have experience in an English environment, but please do not worry. We will help gradually improve your child's communication skills through our daily activities.

English art

We regularly have “English Art” lessons by Ms. Irina at each school.We incorporate Waldorf education into our education and develop English art programs such as making crafts, singing, dancing, reading picture-books. Those art programs will open children’s mind and children will be able to express themselves in art using English.

About food education

当園では園内で給食を作っています。給食の献立は栄養士さんがカロリー計算をしたものを使用し、毎月始めに給食便りをお渡ししています。子ども達は調理をする前の材料を見たりどのようにして作るのかを知り、また調理の音や匂いを感じ食事をおいしく食べるための体と心の準備を整えます。

調理をする人と子ども達は顔を合わせて言葉を交わし、心のこもった料理を食べます。おうちで苦手なもの、あまり食卓に出ないものがあっても、お友達と一緒に食べることで、おいしく感じたり、無理なく食べられるようになったりします。食事をするときのマナーやスプーン、フォーク、お箸の使い方も学んでいきます。

離乳食開始は5ヶ月頃から

一回食の間は、おうちであげてください。
二回食になった頃(8ヶ月頃)から、園での給食(離乳食)になります。離乳食は一人一人の段階に合わせて粒の大きさや固さを調節します。離乳食を急ぎすぎてしまうと、咀しゃくが上手にできず、まるのみになってしまいます。無理なく、ゆっくり進めていくようにします。

おやつについて

週に3日以上は手作りおやつの日です。パンや、ふかし芋、ホットケーキやお団子などのさまざまなメニューがあります。園の一ヶ月の献立をトータルで考えて、給食のボリュームがある日はおやつはさっぱりとしたもの、軽めの日には、サンドイッチや麺類などの腹持ちのいいものなど、栄養のバランスを考えて作っています。

アレルギーのあるお子様について

アレルギー除去食の対応は一切しておりません。各自、給食メニューに沿った毎日お弁当の持参をお願い致します。
