Why Japanese for Kids is so beneficial! A centre in Brisbane running the Konnichiwa Kids Club program tells us why they do!

Check out what Little Scholars in Brisbane have to say about the benefits of running our program! We run Japanese classes in a number of childcare centres in Brisbane, Noosa and Mackay. And these are some of the reasons why we do!

October 2019!

The last few weeks our Brisbane classes have been enjoying lots of sensory activities. The younger rooms have been learning to name their body parts and we have played ‘Doctors’ with some play doctors equipment. Children pointed to where the problem was, ‘atama’ or ‘Onaka’ or ‘hiza’ and the doctor checked and fixed it! This was really fun and the children engaged in the activity picking up on verbal clues in Japanese and repeating words that seemed appropriate!

The older children have been engaging in parachute activities. This is always REALLY enjoyable, and requires cooperation, listening really carefully to instructions and following them explicitly as a group. It’s a superb language learning opportunity! Over the years I have noticed that the ability to focus without distraction on the verbal instructions of an ‘expert’ (teacher, educator, coach, tour guide, lecturer) is a real contributor to successful learning and parachute activities practice this skill.

The boys and girls just thought they were having a great time! They didn’t know they were building skills!

2017 Classes Starting Soon!

Sign-up Posters are up in your centre!

 

I know that you haven’t heard of us! Some of the other extracurriculars are FAB and have been around for a while. You know them. You feel safe! You’re not sure about Japanese for kids that little. We’re pretty new.

Enrol your child today! Support a new, local business! Support World Peace! We want children to receive the best chances to become successful, innovative adults.

You won’t regret it! Your kids will love it!

Konnichiwa Kids Club believe that world peace is possible! We believe in the kids of the world! We believe that growing up with pride in oneself and understanding, appreciation  and admiration for others helps our boys and girls see their places not just in local communities but in a global community that they love and wish to care for! We believe in the power of engaging in culture, in rich experiences in fun and joyfulness! These beliefs underpin all that we do.
