メッセージ / Message

Lucky Kidsでは、子供が楽しく学習できる安心安全な少人数制のアットホームな環境を提供します。そして、モンテッソーリ教育の考えを取り入れ、社会性や自立心を養うこと、学ぶ喜びを味わいながら学習能力を高めること、楽しみながら自然な英語を身に付けることを目標としています。英語を通してコミュニケーション能力が身に付くと、様々な人と触れ合う中で自分に対する理解も深まります。自分とは異なる他者に対する思いやりの心も育ちます。変化の速い世の中で将来お子様が優しく力強く生き、国際的に活躍するための基礎を築くサポートをしていきたいと願っています。 代表取締役 堀 真紀子

At Lucky Kids, our mission is to help children learn, discover, explore, and experience the English language in a safe, warm, and fun environment with love and encouragement. Our goal is, to expose children to critical thinking, social activities that build friendships, improve children’s ability in Fine Motor, Gross Motor and Cognitive learning. All of this within an environment where children can learn natural English through fun activities that they really enjoy. This is all done under the umbrella of the Montessori technique encouraging children to become independent learners.
Through communication, children can recognize the difference within each other and understand more about themselves. They can foster considerate and grateful feelings towards others as well. Lucky Kids gives children the shortcut to becoming near native English speakers and the skills to be bilinguals. Our learning environment supports children in establishing a foundation to be an active member of the international community of the future. Representative Director Makiko Hori

英語教育について / English Education

幼少期は、言語習得に最も適した時期だと言われています。 12歳くらいまでは、脳の働きにより、日常耳にする言語の「音」を聞くだけでその言語を習得できると言われています。特に2歳~6歳くらいにかけては右脳が活発に働くため、言語の音を正確聞き取ったり正確に発音したりする事も可能で、遊びを通して楽しみながら言語に触れることで、自然にその言語を習得していくことが出来ます。また、その言語と触れなくなっても、再度学習を始めれば容易に甦ると言われています。
Lucky Kidsでは、外国人講師が常時教室にいます。英語レッスンの時間だけでなく、遊びの時間等も先生と一緒に英語で過ごします。一緒に、楽しく自然に英語を身に付けましょう!

Childhood is said to be the time that is best suited to language acquisition.
Until about 12 years old, it is said that children can learn a language just by hearing the sound of daily conversation in that language due to the highly receptive nature of their brain. Especially, children between 2 and 6 years old can hear the sound of the language precisely and reproduce it accurately due to their right brain construct. They can learn any language naturally through play while enjoying it. In addition, even if they do not use the language for a while, students still have a good command of the target language once they resume said language again.
In other words, it is a shortcut to English progress to let children listen and speak English as much as possible from infants to elementary age. Let us create an opportunity to expose children to English more during this highly sensitive time period. At Lucky Kids, foreign teachers are in the classes at all times. Children use English with the teachers not only in English lessons but also in play time or during other activities. Let's acquire English naturally and happily together!!
