    FAQ


    How is TCS International Preschool different from other international preschools?

    TCS International Preschool offers an inquiry-based immersion program that allows children to discover, realize, and express their thoughts using the English language. We focus on maintaining a small group to maximize contact between the student and the teacher. We facilitate a safe yet challenging learning contexts within a homely environment so that students feel comfortable learning, acquiring, absorbing - even if it involves occasionally making mistakes.

    Are there summer, winter and spring holidays?

    Yes. We encourage students to have stimulating and exciting holidays full of wonder and discovery - and tell us all about it back at school! Dates will be posted on the website once they are confirmed.

    Does my child need to bring a packed lunch?

    Generally we expect students to bring a packed lunch. We understand however that at times it helps to be able to purchase lunch. A cooked lunch (Japanese-style obento) can be delivered to school.

    Can I enroll my child after April, or even mid-term?

    Yes. Please contact us for a visit and/or observation. We would love to hear from you.

    What if my child doesn't speak English?

    Prior knowledge of English is not required; we will offer plenty of language support so that children will be able to nurture their English language skills from the earliest stages.
