Kid's Nest

Kids Nest is an International after school institution for elementary school children. The children at Kids Nest do their homework, study, and take part in various activities after school. Everyday they have a special English lesson called "English Time" where they put their knowledge of the English they studied to use.

The purpose of Kids Nest is for children to gradually enjoy studing. Kids in the 1st and 2nd grades can absorb a lot of things by activating their brain including, of course, English. Also, they learn how to communicate with others which will help them in their future.

The present goal of the Kids Nest program is for students to pass the Eiken level 5 (English exams) and to pass level 5 of the Kanken (Kanji exams) by the time they are in the 6th grade.

We aim to expose children to both Japanese and Western cultures. For example, diligence and respect for elders from Japanese culture, and independence and self expression from Western culture.
