プリスクール募集のご挨拶
Karugamo English Schoolは今年の1月に11周年を迎え、12年目に入りました。Nurseryより1年遅れてスタートしたPreschoolは、来年13期生を迎えることになりました。4月には三室の新校舎に移り、子ども達は広くなった校庭で思い切り体を動かし、明るい教室で楽しく学んでいます。今まで多くの方達に支えていただき、ここまでくることができ心より感謝しています。

幼児期の教育は生涯にわたる人格形成の基礎を培う重要なものです。Karugamo Preschoolでは、英語にかたよらず、子ども達一人一人がしっかりと自立できるようにバランス良く指導しています。子ども達は月曜日から金曜日まで、いきいきと過ごしています。集団生活のルールを学びつつ、セルフ・エスティーム(※)を高める事ができるように、経験豊富な教師たちが一人一人としっかりと向き合って指導しています。

2020年の東京オリンピック・パラリンピックを見据え、文部科学省は小学校中学年での英語活動、高学年での教科化等、グローバル化に対応した新たな英語教育の在り方、そのための体制整備を進めていますが、英語を学ぶ環境はまだ整っていません。ほとんどの日本人の子供にとって、英語を学ぶのではなく、英語で遊び生活し、楽しみながら英語力を身につけることが出来るのは、Preschoolの年齢だけです。

Karugamo Preschool では、「聞く・話す・読む・書く」の4技能をバランス良く指導し、Preschoolの卒業生が、小学校入学後も英語力を維持しさらに実力をつけることを目指しています。 子供たち一人一人の成長の為に日々努力を惜しまないスタッフと共に、11期生の子供たちを迎えることを心より楽しみにしています。

※セルフ・エスティームとは
日本ではまだなじみが薄い言葉ですが、「自尊心」、「自負(心)」、「自信」、「自己肯定」というふうに訳されています。セルフ・エスティームを一言で表すことは難しいのですが、自分の世界を持ち、自分の存在に自信を持って暮らすということではないかと思います。それができて初めて自分と異なった他人を認めることができます。これは子供たちが自立するために、また英語を学ぶうえで最も大切なことだと私たちは考えています。

Greeting
This year, Karugamo English School passed its 11 Year Anniversary and entered into its 12th year. The Preschool, which started one year later than the Nursery program, will have its 12th class. In April, the Preschool moved its location to Mimuro, giving the children space to move their bodies to their heart’s content in our expanded grounds, as well as giving them the opportunity to have fun learning in our brightly lit classrooms. We were able to come this far because of the support received from so many of you, and we are truly grateful.

Early childhood education is very important in the life of a child. It becomes a basis of the formation of a child’s character, even throughout his or her whole lifetime. At Karugamo English School, we focus not only on English, but also work to help each and every child in our care to become well-balanced and self-reliant. Here, the children spend their time thriving Monday through Friday. While learning about the rules of being part of a community, the children are also each guided by our experienced teachers in a way that helps to raise each and every one of their self-esteems.

As the 2020 Tokyo Olympics approach, the Ministry of Education has put focus on a new way to teach English, the use of English in elementary and junior high schools, the use of English in the high school curriculum and etcetera. Because of that a new system has been put into place, but they still have not been successful in creating an English-learning environment. For most Japanese children, the preschool age is the only time in which it is possible not to “study” English, but to naturally get English ability while having fun playing in an English environment.

At Karugamo Preschool, we strive to guide the four skills: “Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing.” We aim for our Preschool Graduates to be able to maintain and improve their English abilities even after they have entered elementary school.

Our staff, who work very hard every day to aid in the development of each and every child in our care, are looking forward to meeting the children of the 11th class.

What is self-esteem?
In Japan this is not yet a very familiar word, but it can be translated as “self respect,” “pride,” “confidence,” or “self positivity.” It is hard to sum up self esteem in one word or phrase, but we think that it means that a child has his or her own world, and can confidently project himself or herself within that world. With it, a child can distinguish themselves from others. We believe that, for a child to be independent, as well as for a child to speak English, it is very important to have.
