Early Preschool Japanese Class
Half day or Full day（３-５days per week）
2.5 - 3.5 Years Old (Opihi Class)
Pikake's Early Preschool is a stepping stone before going to Montessori's primary class. Aiming at independence in terms of physical and emotional aspects, we focus on basic daily practical life exercises (including using the bathroom, putting on and taking off their clothes and shoes, greetings, etc.) and sensory materials at a child’s own pace. Children spend all day in Japanese class with instruction and curriculum in Japanese. It is a small-sized class and there are 2-3 Japanese native-speaking teachers who interact and guide our children. Potty training is not required.
