Winter School Program (Tachikawa / Preschool & Kindergarten)

Global Step Academy International School (GSAIS) is hosting winter school camps where children can experience the lessons and activities of an international school in a global environment.

GSAIS is an international preschool and kindergarten in Tachikawa City, Tokyo. GSAIS focuses on nurturing students to become well-rounded individuals through the cultivation of their intellectual, creative, personal, social, and physical abilities. The school is committed to educating both local and foreign students to be international and independent thinkers. Also, we focus heavily on academic quality, long-term community development, an understanding of diversity, as well as language learning and communication, ethics, self-awareness, and mindfulness.

We believe that classroom and co-curricular activities are essential in the child’s development and therefore we put a relatively high focus on sports, music, and extracurricular activities where children can fully use their five senses in the learning process, while learning effectively how to function both as an individual and as part of a group through active learning.

Students in the Kindergarten Course will be able to directly join the regular lessons of Global Step Academy International School and experience a real international school curriculum.

The GSAIS curriculum is rooted in the UK-based International Early Years Curriculum (IEYC). The IEYC uses international best practices, holistic inquiry, and play-based approaches that cover all curriculum areas including personal, social, and emotional development. Our child-centered approach encourages learning through discovery and exploration, focusing on fun, hands-on learning that is relevant to the children and nurturing their natural curiosity about the world they live in.

As well as building solid foundations in literacy and numeracy, children attending GSAIS also participate in a range of special subject classes such as art, dance, physical education, and music, all taught in English and part of our regular program. This is because we believe in the importance for children to have a wide variety of experiences in this key stage of their development, engaging them from different angles and encouraging them to grow both as individuals and as members of a group.

Our Language Arts program is based on Jolly Phonics and Grammar. Jolly Phonics is a comprehensive program, based on the proven, fun, and multi-sensory synthetic phonics method that gets children reading and writing from an early age. Students practice phonics, pronunciation, reading, writing, and listening by learning songs, actions and stories.
