i Kids Star is a brand new kindergarten, developed with the know-how of our other successful brands. The kindergarten’s concept is based on a “Bilingual x Active” approach, where we provide childcare combined with intellectual training, sports and English to pre-school children during their crucial golden age for social, intellectual and physical development. We believe in the infinite potential of children and want to inspire intelligent, independent thinkers, that will thrive in an increasingly international world, and who strive to improve themselves through taking on new challenges.
Yaruki Switch Group is a general educational group with a track record stretching 40 years in teaching, nurturing, and opening up a future for children.
What we treasure is not just academic development. We respect each child’s characteristics and nurture their “confidence and motivation” through their successful experience of achieving their goals. “Think for yourself, decide for yourself, and act for yourself”; we help the children to polish their “jibun-ryoku” (self power) and take on challenges in life, opening up their own path without being swayed by the general values and other people’s evaluations.

At Kids Duo International our main goal is to have teachers create a sense of community and belonging in their classrooms. Students need to feel the teachers` love for them and feed off of it in order to reach their full potential. Our values: paternal love, acceptance, energy, passion for teaching, teamwork and Kaizen are imprinted on the hearts of all our instructors, and are the main reason why our students can absorb such extensive curriculum.
At Kids Duo, our approach is not simply about studying English, rather, we follow our philosophy of “Play in English, Learn in English”. Learning a new language is always a challenge, so we aim to create an environment in which children feel safe and can learn in a natural and enjoyable way. We offer a variety of after-school and day care programs that include arts and crafts, music and dance, outdoor activities and occasional field trips, hands on math and story-time, all in English. The success of our program sees continued growth in our student base and the expansion of our schools.
At WinBe, our goal is to bring English education in Japan to a new level, with high results gained from a conversation, phonics and culturally driven curriculum, where instructors are encouraged to provide students with fun, creative classes that forge real-life conversational skills through the use of games, songs and role-play like activities. The sense of accomplishment and confidence fostered in our supportive learning environment, coupled with the skills learnt through our curriculum, provide a platform for future success.
Yaruki Switch Group has schools all over Japan, and each area offers different opportunities for teachers. Schools in big cities have excellent access to museums, shopping malls, restaurants, and nightlife. Living in these areas can be convenient and exciting. Big cities often feature a blending of cultures, and many instructors enjoy eating at eclectic restaurants and meeting people from different countries.
Schools in more rural settings or smaller towns often provide instructors with the best opportunity to learn the Japanese language and experience authentic Japanese culture. Many rural areas are famous for a local delicacy or festival, and the people tend to be very welcoming. Rural schools can be close to public beaches, national parks, or ski resorts. Wherever you live and teach, Japan has a world-class transportation system that allows you to easily access almost anywhere in the country.
