Minami-Ise Regional Development Cooperation Volunteer (南伊勢町地域おこし協力隊) has been offering English classes (Kira Kira Class) at our daycare centers since December 2018.

There are four daycare centers in town, and compared to urban areas the number of children in these centers is small.

A team of two teachers (one native English speaker and one bilingual Japanese teacher) visits each of the four preschools in the town to offer English classes.

The students are full of energy and innocence, and also love participating in English class.

In addition, we have a childcare support agreement with Yaruki Switch Group and receive regular consulting and other support.

Nursery schools in town:

・Gokesho Preschool
・Hobara Preschool
・Nakayoshi Nursery School
・Sakura Nursery School

(Gokesho and Hobara Preschools will be merged into a new nursery school from April 2023.)

* Note: While we sincerely appreciate all applications, only those candidates selected for interview will be contacted.
