About Pre-School

Our Pre-School

A Preschool student at GKA attends two lessons a week after school hours or on weekends. In an English immersion environment, children acquire fundamental language skills where they communicate only in English with native English-speaking teachers and practice good manners. These skills will prepare them for the elementary school.

GKA Preschool adopts varied teaching methods different from other English schools for children. Through various activities conducted only in English, children learn meaningful contents in English. Instead of memorizing words through repetition with flashcards, the unique curriculum is designed to help children to naturally acquire new vocabularies and functional language through songs, games, and crafts.

The Role Played by Pre-School

The GKA pre-school program opens up all of life’s wonders to a child. Our best hope is to inspire a
love for learning. To achieve this goal, activities are delivered in a play-way method to teach basic skills
to become life-long learners.

Songs and games engage children in experiential learning where they learn and play together and
have fun in English. Cooking with the help of the parents is one special event for the preschoolers.

Pre-School Tokyo

“What is learning English like at Gunma Kokusai Academy?”

“I am not sure whether my child will like Gunma Kokusai

“I’m interested in the Gunma Kokusai Academy, but there is still
too little information ready for relocation…”

Preschool Tokyo is an English language learning class for those families. Before you take
the big step of moving to the suburbs of Gunma, get a little feel of the atmosphere of the
school and take a peek at the cutting edge education in Japan, which may change in the
next few years. It is also an opportunity to gauge your child’s interest in learning English.
Over the period of a year, children will make good friends, enjoy learning English and get
a feel for the educational philosophy of Gunma Kokusai Academy!
