Covid-19 Protocol and procedures
At this time, we remain open as an essential service to our families. We take cleanliness very seriously at ABC. We follow the strictest protocols to limit the spread of viruses and germs. Our school is cleaned daily, all high touch areas are wiped throughout the day and toys sterilized nightly. At the moment, we have suspended all school visitors. (Please feel free to book a virtual tour with us!) For teachers and children, upon entering, everybody must wash their hands. We have hand cleaning breaks throughout the day (before eating, coming inside) We practice "shark nose" coughing (coughing into elbow). Temperatures are taken upon arrival and throughout the day. Any suspicion of illness or any fever, the person will don a mask and be sent home immediately with contact and follow up from our school Director. Each of our rooms in the school has an air scrubber with HEPA filter which filters 99.97 particles including viruses from the air. We also spend time outdoors in our private playground and run & bike track. Fresh air is essential to boost children's immunities and keep them healthy. We will continue to be vigilant and practice the highest level of hygiene and caution while providing care for our families. We have also opened our mountain school in Tochigi Prefecture up to ABC families as an alternative to staying in Tokyo for the time being.
Welcome to ABC International School Tokyo
ABC International School is one of Tokyo’s premiere International preschools. Our organization has been providing high-quality preschool services in Tokyo since 1998. We offer a proprietary, foundational academic curriculum that supports the achievement of learning goals through active exploration, hands-on discovery and social competence. Our small, unique, fluid learning groups provide a catalyst for the development of strong, healthy relationships, solid learning skills, and academic confidence. Learning activities are inquiry-based, developmentally appropriate and child-centered.
We are very proud to have moved into our custom designed and built facility September, 2017! Our school now boasts a gym, covered outdoor classroom, art atelier, playground, nature garden, and both preschool and pre-kindergarten learning environments. We have imported zero emissions, edible grade furniture from NaturalPod in Canada. We have a limited number of spaces available at our school for children aged 1-7. We'd LOVE to share our beautiful school with you!
