Kodomo Edu announced that English Summer Art Camp (imagine program) 2017 with Reggio Emilia approach would be held and thankfully a lot of parents more than our capacity applied to it only one month after the announcement.
We invited Teacher Suraiya Daud, who is a well-experienced early childhood educator in Los Angeles, California. She provided very unique program which was inspired by her own experiences as an art director at Walt Disney Company. Children were actively involved in the program which they could never experience in any other programs in Japan.

What differentiates us? (1)
Highly skilled Reggio Emilia teacher will join us!
Both Disney and Google have adopted the Reggio Emilia approach at their company preschools. Newsweek magazine wrote that the Reggio Emilia approach is “the world’s most innovative early childhood education”. Our partner Teacher Suraiya will be teaching again. She is a highly skilled Reggio Emilia teacher who has over 15 years of teaching experience in Los Angeles, USA and who developed the art program for Disney’s preschools in the U.S.

Unique art materials will inspire child’s creativity.
We adopt the art program Teacher Suraiya has developed for her preschool in Los Angeles. In this program, children are free to play and work with the various kinds of unique art materials such as watercolor, clay, sewing, and wireworks each arranged at 10 different workstations. By carefully selecting and arranging those creative supplies and materials which are actually used by professional artists, we help children foster their own creativity and imagination.

Bilingual teachers will support children using their first language.
We have total of 6 teachers including Teacher Suraiya. Since our staffs are able to communicate well with your children both in English and in Japanese, children can develop their creativity using their first language and also have a good opportunity to learn second language.

We offer Q&A sessions by Teacher Suraiya. Parents have opportunities to learn early childhood learning topics.
One of the most important role of parents is to find children’s interests and to give them opportunities to further explore their curiosity. But sometimes parents have difficulty in finding good way to do so. “What kind of encouragements could help my kids spontaneously find new discovery? “ “How could we get my kids more involved?” We offer Q&A sessions by Teacher Suraiya to answer those questions and to help you find the solutions. We believe that this program provide the best opportunity for not only children but also their parents to learn and grow up together.

Creatively fulfilling extended program! The art class by two Australian artists.
We also offer the extended art program in which we invited two Australian artists who specialize in art (please refer to the details for the extra charge). By learning from those teachers with sophisticated sense of art and with different cultural background, your children will further stimulate their curiosity, and also can naturally improve their English communication skill. In this program, we provide mainly drawing lessons, but since the theme of the drawings changes everyday, your children can enjoy learning new things through each single class.
