Monarch International Preschool

Welcome to Monarch!

Monarch International Preschool is a warm and welcoming learning environment for the early years of development. Our preschool is a special place where children are encouraged to grow in body, mind and spirit. We offer children a secure and safe environment where curiosity is encouraged, concepts are explored and discovery is celebrated. The children experience the power of learning together in small and large groups while still pursuing their own individual learning pathways.

Our philosophy is based on the belief that children are capable of thinking deeply and reflectively. Our teachers guide the children as they develop and refine their knowledge and understanding through the exploration of their ideas and experiences.

The relationship that we build with our young students is founded upon respect for their thinking, their feelings and their right to be taken seriously. We also respect the children’s right to engage in a learning program that recognizes individual learning styles and preferences through our low ratio of teacher to students.

We believe that young children’s learning is essentially a social process that involves listening, engagement, communication and reflection. We recognize that a high self esteem and a strong sense of belonging are essential if optimal learning is to occur.

Join us in the heart of the Minatomirai area of Yokohama as we embark on a joyful and memorable learning journey.
