May is just around the corner! At YMCA Global Kindergarten (YGK), an English
Kindergarten run by Yokohama YMCA, we can see many carps flying happily.
Each class student made their own designed colorful
carps. We can see a big carp made by the
Kitten class (4-5 years old), cute small carps painted by the Puppy children
(3-4 years) and also ones made by the Joeys (2-3 years old).
Every single carp looks so happy in the hallway so that we also feel happy to see them!
We can also see many kinds of flowers
blooming and butterflies dancing around here and there at YGK. The Kitten class was playing pretend florist
where we could buy many different colorful and beautiful flowers. In the Puppy class, their own-designed
butterflies were dancing cheerfully to the songs.
Everyone is enjoying this flowery and
beautiful season fully.
Of course, much more fun is waiting ahead
of us! Don’t miss them!!
It’s April, the month of new starts.
At YMCA Global Kindergarten (YGK), an English kindergarten run by Yokohama YMCA, we started a
new school year.
On Wednesday, April 6, we had an opening
ceremony in which we welcomed our new friends and celebrated those moving up
into a higher grade.
Everyone seems happy and excited with their
As we started our new school year, we
learned our new daily routines and other important things, like classroom
rules, safety rules, etc.
Speaking about the safety, the Cub class
(5-6 years old class) visited Yokohama Disaster Prevention Center to learn more
about our safety. We experienced big
quakes and a smoke room. Teachers
learned how to use a fire extinguisher.
We can never be ready enough for disasters, but at least, this little
bit of knowledge will help us in emergencies.
As for the Puppy class (3-4 years old
class), everything is totally new to them.
They had their very first lunch in school, their first music lesson, and
more. Of course, everyone will have much
fun throughout the year, there's much more to come!
We can’t wait to know what’s going to happen
next! Let’s stay safe and happy!
YMCA Global Kindergarten・スプリングスクール実施報告 YMCA Global
Kindergarten (YGK), an English kindergarten run by Yokohama YMCA, had a 4-day
Spring School programme in the end of March.
On Day 1,
we went to Negishi Forest Park. It was a
nice sunny spring day and we ran and played to our hearts' content.
On Day 2,
we visited Yokodai Science Museum. We
enjoyed the starry sky in the planetarium.
It was absolutely beautiful! We
had a lot of fun in the recreation area:
we climbed, slid, hopped but also conducted some science experiments
which were simple but very educational indeed.
On Day 3,
we headed for Shonandai Cultural Center.
We saw many beautiful clothes from all over the world and even tried
them on! Wow! How beautiful they looked,
your children, in those exotic dresses!
On Day 4,
we went all the way to Kodomo no Kuni.
It was a bit far, but it was fun!
We saw cows, sheep, and a horse and gave them some food. The children loved this experience. We also enjoyed soft-cream, which is a
well-known speciality of Kodomo no Kuni.
It was sweet and yummy!
school year is just around the corner.
We can’t wait to see our new friends.
it another great school year!
