International Exchange Community Operated by an International School

Yokohama is home to many foreign residents, however, due to language and cultural barriers, these families from overseas often end up in small, limited communities. Yet there are many Japanese families who want to interact with and support foreign families.
Taking advantage of the fact that this community is operated by an international school, we will provide not only a place for exchange, but also a new type of exchange community by sharing professional knowledge and information on international education, childcare, and child-rearing.
