International Preschool for
Childcare and Global Education

Through "childcare" and "global education" from early childhood, CGK International School nurtures
the physical and mental growth of children to provide them with infinite future possibilities.

Unlike other preschools/kindergartens, CGK International School doesn't just babysit children during childcare hours, but offers a wide variety of programs while at the same time providing the highest quality care. Through high-quality "global education," CGK International School stimulates curiosity and interest here in Yokohama and to the wide-world, raising "real global kids" who can think for themselves and demonstrate leadership.

Childcare+Global Education

Fulfilling Childcare & Education Program

At CGK, children are cared for full time from 8:30am to 5:00pm (8:00am to 6:30pm if extended care is included),
5 days a week. There are no shorter hours or less than 5 day-a-week courses.

For this reason, we are able to provide not only English education, but a full curriculum of subjects
along with a variety of programs, which are of the highest standard in both quantity and quality.

Pygmalion Classes Develop Acute Cognitive Abilities

  • Sending Students to Nada Junior High, One of the Toughest Schools in Japan

    Pygmalion education, which has seen great success in the Kansai area, has been introduced to an international preschool for the first time in Japan. The Pygmalion Early Childhood Education Method has been adopted by Hama Gakuen (Hama Kids), which has the highest number of students accepted into Nada Junior High School, the most difficult junior high school to get into in Japan.

    Developing "Acute Cognitive Abilities" and "Problem-solving Abilities"

    With the rise of IT and AI, education that only focuses on knowledge / skill is becoming redundant. The Pygmalion method increases finger, spatial, graphic, number logic and language skills to enhance acute cognitive abilities, rather than simply cramming the students with knowledge.

    Optimal Education for the Critical Childhood Years

    Higher mental abilities are best developed in early childhood which is a critical time for brain growth. Conversely, if not nurtured with appropriate methods and materials during this period, a lower mental capacity that only allows for input of knowledge and skills will become fixed.
