■ Our Teaching Style

i Kids Star is the newest addition to our family of Yaruki Switch Group schools; a new bilingual kindergarten encompassing all of the experience and know-how gleaned from our existing 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 the 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.

i Kids Star boasts a varied curriculum tailored for students aged 2-6 based on U.S. & U.K. Early Education standards, including programs like Phonics, Reading & Writing, Arts, Math, and Drama. Our comprehensive Physical Education program plays a key role in the school’s curriculum as well - developed by our pioneering sister-school Ninja Nine, this new and revolutionary approach to physical education focuses on the biomechanics of human movement to help develop students’ athletic talents and performance.

At i Kids Star, we strive to provide children the opportunity to express themselves bilingually, develop an international cultural understanding, experience success, and cultivate their power of independence!
