Students begin to wiggle with anticipation as the young presenter standing at the front of the class finishes describing their show and tell to the group. You ask the class, "I know you are all excited to take turns looking at the item that Yuta brought today. Before we start, can you remind me what kind of hands we use?" The class responds in chorus, "Gentle hands!" The wooden train is passed from student to student as they take a moment to inspect the toy. As it is returned to the owner, you ask the class, "Does anyone have any questions or comments?" Eager hands immediately shoot up. Asking a student in the front row, they ask, "Where did you get it?" Curious heads nod in agreement. As the presenter answers questions from his classmates, you can see his confidence growing. When questions and answers are finished, you thank Yuta for bringing in something so important to share, thank the students for their questions and comments, and get ready for the next part of the day.

Established in 1985, Tokyo International School Group (TISG) runs Tokyo International School Afterschool (TISAS), Tokyo International School Kindergarten (TISKG) and Tokyo International School Learning Through English (TISLTE) at our Nakameguro, Minami Azabu, Komazawa, and Gakugeidaigakku model school campuses in Tokyo.

Tokyo International School Kindergarten (TISKG) is a three-year international kindergarten program that provides an immersion environment (children must attend at least 3 days per week) for non-native English-speaking children. Students attend classes from 9:15 am until 2:00 pm. The first year of this program is an immersion focus where the aim is to build a solid base of communicative ability. In the second year, the students are introduced to the inquiry learning model and this style of learning is further reinforced in the third year. The maximum number of students per class is 14.
