About Us

Your Child Is in Great Hands



Where PLAY is Important!


Every child, every family, every teacher, every activity plays an integral role in the health and happiness of our school environment and community.  

Playpourri Teachers adjust and tailor lessons to help our students investigate, enquire, explore and discover learning experiences that support their intellectual and social growth. 

We often refer to our classrooms as Mini United Nations.  We embrace the opportunity to discuss and learn about our friends from all over the world and be mindful of individual respect and diversity.

Daily interaction and connection with parents is valued and encouraged.  An open dialogue with our families ensures our program is understood, clearly communicated and supported by all parties.

Raising a family in Japan, without extended family support, is challenging.  Playpourri was established with the intent of helping families care for and educate their children.   With this in mind, our program has multiple options for parents to work within their parenting ideals, goals and budgets.  

We invite you to visit our school for a more in-depth explanation and observation of our classrooms.  

Appointments can be made by contact.
