What parents say about us

“Xi Kindergarten is a great choice for my daughter. The atmosphere is very cheerful and friendly. The classrooms are bright, there is lots of sunlight coming in, and the facilities are really nice with the ballroom, playgrounds and pool. All the staff, from the classroom teachers to the office manager and security guard know all the children by name, which is very important to me, as I know they are safe at all times. The education program is great too. Even though the children are little, they learn swimming, arts and crafts, dance, maths and language. My daughter loves all the activities they do everyday. I recommend Xi to any parent wanting to send their child to a friendly, safe and educationally strong environment.”

Emi Hiramatsu (Xi parent for 2 years)

“I sent my child to kindergarten at AIS because the teachers are experienced and I know my child will learn a lot from them. The school is near our house. I know it’s safe and secure and I have nothing to worry about. I like AIS for my daughter because they offer formal schooling for kindergarten. Aside from the fun games, my daughter learned to read and write the alphabet. My daughter loves going to school because she enjoys the company of her classmates and the activities the school provides. Teachers encourage socialization among the children, which is great”
