Global Village International Preschool was founded in 2001, in northern Osaka. Built by experienced and qualified instructors to provide early years education to students in English, we now have three established locations in this region. We are also an official Cambridge English Exam Preparation Centre. We provide early years education, daycare, and after school programmes for preschoolers, alongside courses designed to offer continued support for our graduates. We also offer Saturday School and Summer School programmes in two of our settings.
As a learning community and school, we are responsible for providing a positive, safe environment that supports all children’s physical, emotional, and social development as well as their academic growth, while in our care. While children are taught in English, our curriculum incorporates a wide range of learning experiences that celebrate both Western and Japanese cultures. We seek to nurture, in each child, an active and lifelong engagement in learning. A core principle of our philosophy is that learning and engagement is most effective in an environment where the process is as important as the result itself and with lessons and activities that have a practical meaning in their lives.
