Philosophy

Our pedagogical approach is the result of bringing together the best aspects of a variety of teaching methodologies, philosophies, and environments and has been developed over the past 23 years at  ABC International School in Tokyo. We incorporate elements from the best that research has to offer from educational theorists and psychologists like Maria Montessori, Loris Malaguzzi, Bev Bos.   We incorporate key aspects from world-renowned practices including the Montessori Method, the Reggio Emilia Approach, Waldorf School Principles, EYFS, The Curiosity Approach, and The Wonder League.  Our learning is routed in JOY and preserving the magic of childhood while fostering a lifelong love of learning through presenting meaningful learning opportunities. No worksheets here!  All of our learning experiences are experiential, hands-on, and multidimensional. 

"The preschool years never last long enough, but  The Nest experience will last a lifetime."

 WE KNOW WHAT AN IMPORTANT DECISION CHOOSING YOUR CHILD'S PRESCHOOL IS AND THE TRUST AND CONFIDENCE THAT YOU NEED TO FEEL.  
WE WOULD LOVE TO SHARE OUR SCHOOL WITH YOU THROUGH A PERSONAL TOUR TO HELP MAKE YOUR DECISION EASIER.
