About Tokyo Children's Garden

Tokyo Children’s Garden is an innovative, Reggio Emilia-inspired bilingual preschool nestled in the heart of Tokyo. We view children as capable learners and actively embrace their thoughts and ideas in our unique, nurturing environment.

At the start of the pandemic, we temporarily closed our Tokyo campus while seeking an alternative to online sessions. Believing young children need real-life experiences, we relocated to a scenic house in the woods of Kawaguchiko, surrounded by breathtaking views of Mt. Fuji, not knowing if any of our school families would follow us.

To our delight, most of our families joined us, resulting in a memorable summer of forest fun. Since then, we have regularly offered forest school experiences in Karuizawa and are thrilled to introduce our Nature Adventure camp to new families this summer.
