About Afterschool Kindergarten

Time: 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Afterschool Kindergarten is a native English immersion class that helps children learn English through creative activities, structured curriculum, and having fun together. Through positive learning, our friendly staff creates an atmosphere where everyone is welcome.

Here at Joy to the World we call this class: AK
Afterschool Kindergarten is an excellent class for children who attend  Japanese Kindergartens and children who want more exposure to the English Language naturally and academically. This program is held five times a week (Monday to Friday) from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

Many students come 2 or 3 times a week to get the most exposure to all aspects of the English Language. The class includes a well-developed curriculum that covers all aspects of the English language.

We work intensely on the alphabet, phonics sounds, sight words, early reading and writing for all levels. We have developed an integrated curriculum with a variety of fun activities like story-telling,  worksheets, singing, and creative crafts.
