About Our Company:
Wings Kids Family is a new type of English school that provides early English education in Japan.
Our business model correlates with Japanese society’s lack of public child care services by performing as a pre-school, and an afterschool program. This structure increases the quantity of English emersion so that children stay at our school for about 50-60 hours a month on average. The English levels of our students show obvious improvements; especially compared to general Japanese English levels.
At Wings Kids Family we create a ‘second home’ environment designed as a living space completely in English, despite being located in Japan. As soon as the kids enter our school all communication is supposed to be in English. Instead of an indirect teaching method simulated by a textbook, the children are able to experience life in English, carrying out daily activities immersed in the language. Our school’s design is to focus every moment to be a chance for kids to circulate English input and output. However, additional to the English environment we use some direct teaching methods to help the kids learn. Flashcards or Slides on the television are used to show a picture, the English word, and the way it sounds at the same time. The vocabulary and phrases learned in class are then used on our walks, or at the park ("Look! The white dog is so cute!"). This circulation of language helps the kids store more English expressions until they can eventually use English as a communication tool.
