Our Teaching Style
At Kids Duo, we're not a language school – we're a dynamic preschool and after-school care program. Founded in 2008, Kids Duo was the first of its kind in Japan, combining childcare with immersive English language learning. With over 200 locations across the country, we're proud to offer a unique environment where children thrive.

Our approach to language learning is interactive and game-based, focusing on practical language use and building confidence in communication. With our motto, "Play in English, Learn in English," we create a supportive atmosphere where children feel empowered to express themselves.

But our mission goes beyond English fluency. We believe that language skills are tools for personal growth and success. At Kids Duo, we aim to help children discover their innate talents and develop self-confidence and motivation. Through our innovative curriculum, which includes subjects like Arts & Crafts, Music & Dance, Science, and Social Studies, we provide a well-rounded education that prepares children for the challenges of the future.
