GIIS - Leading International Preschool in Tokyo, Japan

The two forms of Early childhood education are Day care and Kindergartens. Preschool or Early childhood education is not considered mandatory in Japan, therefore Kindergartens are run privately like GIIS and the ideal age to enrol in Japanese Kindergarten is between three to five. The rudimentary direction indicated by the Ministry of Education - Japan towards the Kindergarten learning framework is Culture, Technology, Science and Sports.

Japanese Kindergartens also promote and instill in students -  respect for family, school and teachers. Young Kindergartners at GIIS are taught to develop healthy minds and bodies through play and in group-oriented environments.

Age Criteria for Preschool and Kindergarten School Admission

GIIS Tokyo accepts students aged between 2.5 and 3.5 in Montessori while kindergarteners between 3.5 and 5.0 have the option of starting school at Junior KG (K1) or Senior KG (K2) levels, where our best educators introduce them to lessons, ideas, and concepts in a fun learning atmosphere. Our exemplary GMP curriculum has made GIIS the leading Montessori schools of Tokyo.

Extra-Curricular Activities (ECA)

The wide array of ECAs available at our international kindergarten in Tokyo helps young students develop social skills, critical thinking, and teamwork ability, establishing GIIS as one of Japan’s best Indian Nursery schools. Mandatory involvement in any of the activities promotes student's exceptional overall development and enhances innate skills like entrepreneurship and creativity.


Co-Curricular Activities (CCA)

Co-curricular activities are an essential part of holistic education. We believe every child possesses a unique and outstanding inborn talent that must be identified at the appropriate age. We offer a plethora of CCAs at GIIS Tokyo International Preschool that assist students in channeling their passions, while finding their interests. We encourage all our students to participate in different competitions, performances, clubs, quizzes, etc. to gain a little more than theoretical knowledge and become confident adults.


Safety And Security

As one of the largest international kindergartens in Tokyo, the safety of all our students is of paramount concern for us. We have taken all necessary precautions and measures to ensure students and teachers have adequate layers of security from the minute they arrive at the campus till the time they leave. Our entire campus has a combination of  traditional and modern security measures implemented  across the entire campus, such as safe entry and exit points, CCTV cameras, identity cards, etc.


Building NextGen Leaders

Young students are enthusiastic learners with their whole future in front of them. They are curious, enthusiastic, and eager to learn. As a prestigious elementary school in Japan, we provide a fusion of both Eastern and Western teaching methodologies. We take pride in having a curriculum framework that teaches students beyond academics by integrating other aspects of their life. The ultimate objective of this well-rounded approach is to prepare students to face the numerous difficulties that this ever-changing world presents.

Going Green

We encourage our students to achieve excellence in academics, while also learning to care for nature and the environment around us. Our environmental programmes, such as Go Green, emphasise over the necessity of recycling and upcycling, as well as how to efficiently use them to decrease waste. We organise various environmental drives, such as planting of trees, sowing seeds, celebration of festivals and birthdays in an eco-friendly manner by making the best out of classroom waste. This encourages our students to actively participate in environmental awareness programmes.

Community Partnerships

GIIS Tokyo has earned the title of finest nursery school in Japan thanks to its outstanding educational programme that encourages students to engage in community service and to be morally and socially responsible. Our school offers fantastic opportunities to students to participate in events, such as fundraisers and book collection drives, as well as environmental drives that will help them learn how they can make the world a better place to live.
