Chicky Class (2 years)

Nomura Preschool begins to lay the foundations of learning readiness and social interaction in the Chicky class. In this class, our two-year-olds focus on sharing, role-playing, and the development of good listening and communication skills. Chickies also develop social and self-help skills in a warm and encouraging environment. Children, teachers, and parents participate in potty-training exercises to help the little ones learn to stay dry all day!

Music is an important part of the Chickies’ day. Sharing songs and poems, with creative movement, is a great way for children to express themselves, and develop an understanding of pitch, rhythm, and rhyming. A specialist teacher also visits the class twice a week to provide enrichment music classes, and prepare students for performance opportunities.

Throughout the Chickies’ day, there are many opportunities for creative and free play. In this first class at Nomura School, children have fun learning, and it shows!

*In addition to regular classroom teachers, the Chicky Class also has music and yoga lessons from specialized teachers every week.
