私たちの想い

Vision
わたしたちは地域社会の人たちと一緒に、子供たちを愛で一杯に満たし、未来へ向けて希望ある持続可能な社会を築いていけたらと願い、活動しています。
国際機関や多くの国で公用語としても使われている「英語」を用いて、主にインターナショナルスクール(国際幼稚園)・英会話クラス・デイケアの運営をしております。
その他、大人も子供も交流、社会貢献、自己啓発などを目的に様々な活動を企画しています。大人(保護者や地域住民) のための子育てワークショップ(体験型学習会)・秋祭り・その他地域でのチャリティーイベントなどを実施、公園清掃、ビーチクリーン、老人ホーム訪問、植林支援活動などを長年してきております。コロナ禍でもできる活動も模索しています。
基本的には、大人には、子育ての助けや、人としての心の成長と社会の一員として身につけておきたいスキルを、子どもには、内なるバリューを大切に世界を身近に感じながら主体的に楽しく遊ぶうちに自然と「学び」ができるような活動になるよう心がけています。
