We are also looking for a full-time teacher in our Tokyo locations.
Nico Kids English is a quickly growing and expanding English school with about 400 students in 2 locations in Tokushima and 2 locations in Tokyo.
We specialize in fun and exciting, student-centered English lessons for students ranging in ages from 3 to 12 years old.
Our curriculum has proven to be very effective and shows very fast results for most students.
A handful of lessons for jr. high school, high school, and adults students are also available in the evenings.
On November 6th, 2021, we have opened the 2 locations in Tokyo, and they are growing rapidly.
No one knew about us in the area, but within 1 month, we have gotten 70 students.
Not only that, but also we have been getting amazing feedback from parents after their kids' lessons,
Here are some;
"My daughter is only four years old, but after a few lessons she started asking me "How are you?" and counting numbers up to 100 at home"
By Kana's mom
"My son used to not respond at all when I spoke to him in English. Now, he tries to talk to me in English and when he doesn't understand something, he asks me "What's that in English?"
By Yuuto's mom
"My son hated every English lesson I took him to as a trial, and he never liked it. However he enjoys Nico Kids English lessons, so I am extremely happy"
By Hayato's mom
Our Concept Video
We are more than just an English school.
We are a close community helping our students achieve 3 key goals to have a successful, happy, and meaningful future, which can help them find something they would love and enjoy in their later years.
- Communication - being able to express their emotions and opinions via English as a tool can promote their connection with other people and cultures.
- Challenge- by creating a safe environment, students can make take advantage of their mistakes to help them propel themselves to achieve more.
- Independence- as a school, we try to give each student some creative space so that they can use their imaginations not only to remember English but to build on their own personalities.
Future Goals/On-Going Projects
- Opening 4 or 5 more locations in 3 years.
- Creating our own Phonics books.
- Providing an iPad for each student in class allows students to learn an important skill in this technological era.
Let us introduce you to our fun, friendly, positive, creative, motivated ... (I probably should stop, hahaha) team members!
