Early childhood physical activity is not only important for strong healthy bodies–it is also essential for brain development.  Along with daily physical education, a specialist provides weekly gymnastics lessons to ensure fitness of body and brain!

Music & Pianica

We believe the arts to be a key focus of early childhood development, growing a sense for the aesthetic and providing outlets for communication and creativity. At Discovery, children are instructed in voice and rhythm by an expert teacher and have opportunities throughout the day to enjoy music and movement. Our 4 & 5 year olds also have the option of learning how to read notes to play the pianica, with opportunities to perform!

While our daily pursuits are entirely conducted in English, our school is located in Japan. Our optional Japanese class helps children build vocabulary, learn about Japanese culture, and even learn to read and write hiragana!


Swimming Class

In partnership with nearby Beat Swim Club, Discovery students have the option of taking weekly swimming lessons! A licensed child care provider accompanies the children to and from the lesson by bus and assists them at the venue. We also have pool and water play time in the school playground in the hot summer months!
