ECE Course

Hokuto New York offers early childhood education (ECE) designed for children from 3 years and 6 months to preschool age.
The lessons have been designed for the further development of children’s physical and mental capabilities.
The curriculum come in three levels: elementary, intermediate, and advanced, depending on the development stage of the child.
The course will allow children to enjoy learning on their own, which will help enhance their independence in future choice and decisions.
Our curriculum will be prepared and matched to suit your child’s development stage.

ECE Bilingual Course

We offer bilingual courses (in Japanese and English) to preschool age students. Our bilingual course is designed to help children develop their Japanese and English thinking skills through “play based learning” (education which promotes the growth of the child’s intellectual capacities through play). Children will also enjoy learning the differences between Japanese and English. The ability to understand more than one language encourages creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. Our bilingual course is designed for children who are learning Japanese as their heritage language. In addition to our “play based learning,” the curriculum will teach students Japanese folktales and culture.
