Building the foundations of Global Citizenship
We believe that home is the foundation where learning takes place, and that education should be a cooperative effort with the school and parents. gCafe introduces play and learning customized and appropriate to each child’s development.
The goal of Parenting class is to aid the growth and development of globally minded citizens. Home and school work collaboratively to achieve this goal. Parents and children, from pregnancy through two years of age, participate together and learn as a team to build the foundations of a globally minded citizen.
未来の人材を育てているのは「家庭」であり、従来の「預ける教育」から「共創する教育」が次世代を支えていく基盤となると私たちは考えています。同じ子どもであってもそれぞれ生まれもったユニークさを持ち合わせています。そのため、Parenting Schoolでは子どもの発達に合わせて カスタマイズされたあそび、学びがたくさんあります。
Children learn to self express through activities using their bodies. A child’s individuality develops according to the adult interation they receive.
A child’s self esteem develops through interaction about their actions and thoughts. A child with high self esteem has the confidence to make choices and interact with their environment. We introduce language aimed to build self esteem.
Language is a tool we use to deliver our thoughts to others, comprehend the thoughts of others, and share ideas. Teachers using English, and parents using English or Japanese, will use these two different tools with different sounds will build the foundations of bilingualism in their children.
An object may be used in multiple ways. Through introducing open ended play, we help develop all five senses of children.
A child’s emotional well-being impacts their interpersonal relationships for years to come. Through learning how children grow and develop emotionally, parents collaborate with teachers to build an enrvironment for the child in which they feel safe.
Attending class together allows children to learn from their peers. Interacting with each other allows for further development of expression and ways to play.
