Meguro Campus

Aoba-Japan International School’s Meguro campus is a kindergarten located in the heart of Tokyo. Our kindergarten offers a valued program for children from the age of one-and-a-half to six. Kindergarten is the initial education for children and our school staff devotes its effort to ensure that the children benefit from their school life. We seek to first understand the children, then to be understood.

Aoba aims to help individuals enjoy learning in a safe and caring environment. The children learn through study, crafts, games, experiments, play and swimming. As the children progress through kindergarten, they are prepared for a seamless transition to grade school.
