We believe in the importance of communication between the baby and his/her primary caregiver in the aspect of language development. This baby class is not only for the baby but also for the caregiver to learn the way to make the best environment for the baby to prepare for the Japanese Immersion Program. To support those families, we offer this Baby Prep program to provide the time immersed in Japanese environment with your baby, familiarizing Japanese sounds, songs, culture and more! How much your baby is exposed to new language heavily affects his/her language in future.
Please note that participating the Baby Prep program does NOT guarantee you to register for the preschool program.
