Spring Program March 19-30 2018

This March 19 to 30 (Mon to Friday) we will be having our “Spring Program” each day from 10:30 to 1pm.  (There will be no program on Tuesday March 20).

We will play with games, toys, sing songs, read stories, play outside, make crafts and each lunch together!    We also have friends who don’t go to Maple regularly who come and join us for this special program.   Kids are anywhere from 3 years old to grade 6.   You can come for one day or all the days … as many as you like!   We only ask that you have some English learning background.


Here’s my craft!


Preschool Graduation

Our preschool kids graduated this week!    Our children come to Maple from 10:30 to 12:00, plus optional lunch time, two or three times a week.

Their English has really improved quite a bit and on top of that they have learned lots of life skills that are good prepartion for regular Japanese kindergarten.



  • separating from Mom and being secure and independent
  • following routines
  • taking care of themselves and their things (getting dressed for outside, taking out their things from their bag and putting things away), using the toilet, washing their hands, tidying up
  • getting along with friends: sharing, taking turns, listening, expressing feelings appropriately
  • practice with drawing, using scissors and other skills

We had a lot of fun this year !   Playing outside, playing with toys, singing, story time, crafts, play dough, joking, laughing, eating together!
