Education for All
Children deserve the best education. So whether Joy to the World is your first school at 18 months old to two years old, or if you are starting at three years or older, we are ready for your child. After graduating from Joy to the World, many students stay in our Afterschool programs while going to Japanese Elementary schools. Others go on to International Elementary schools here in Tokyo and around the world.
Through more than 20 years of teaching children of all levels and ages, we have learned to nurture children, celebrate their individuality, and encourage their strengths.
