An English school for kids of various ages and nationalities, Smile Club has a program of activities to capture the imagination of any child. The school, based in Sumiyoshi, encourages children from age 2 to junior high school students to immerse themselves in an international setting and learn English in a fun way, alongside a variety of other topics. Summer courses will be held from July 19 through August 20, with excursions that include a trip to Minakami Onsen in the historic rural town of Sekigahara, Gunma Prefecture, where kids can explore the beauty of nature and Japanese culture.
Smile Club offers weekday preschool and kindergarten courses from 9:30am till 2pm (2:45pm for second- and third-year kindergarten students), and afterschool programs on weekdays and Saturdays. To help kids expand and improve their English, Smile Club also has special classes for students attending nearby international schools. Busy parents can also take advantage of bus pickups and drop-offs, which means that everyone’s summer will be a happy one at Smile.
