Imagine International Preschool:
Located in Yokohama's Landmark Tower in the heart of the city in the Minatomirai area of Nishi-ku ward, Imagine International Preschool is an early childhood education center that provides education for children from ages 18 months to 6 years. All programs are conducted in English. Imagine children are encouraged to think as individuals, use their initiative and have a broad understanding of the world around them. Our convenient location allows us to explore the "real world" around us, including local parks, shopping centers and popular local landmarks. Imagine's facilities are spacious and child-friendly, with an expansive view of the city below us.

"Imagine is a place where children have the freedom to discover their inner strengths, express their individuality, and are inspired to follow their dreams" - School Philosophy

Our Mission:

Our mission is to nurture children's natural talents and encourage them to be themselves with free and open minds. We believe the determination to live life according to your own will and intention, is linked to attaining happiness.

The key elements to this, fostered through the education which Imagine provides, are:

- Individuality = The essence of life
- Intellect = The essence of creativity and imagination
- Internationalism = The essence of the ability to live in a global world beyond borders.

We affirm that all children who spend their early years at Imagine will contribute greatly and be able to lift themselves up on the world stage.

Unique Early Childhood Education:

Imagine opened in July, 2003 as Imagine Child Development Center. Our founder, Hiroki Kinoshita, was inspired to open an early childhood education center that was unique in Japan.

He was impressed by the quality of overseas childcare and the educational possibilities for children in an emergent type curriculum. In collaboration with Kathleen McCartney, a behavioral psychologist at Harvard, Imagine incorporated the Project Approach as our fundamental method for early childhood development.

Through the years, Imagine has continued to develop educational methods to incorporate recent research in the field of early childhood education. In July, 2009, we changed our name to Imagine International Preschool to better reflect the international culture that is evident in the school.
