With the number of foreign nationals in Nagoya at an all-time high there is a greater and greater demand for schools that offer education in the English language.
But as a parent how do you decide what school is best for your child? There are so many considerations. What is your child’s level of English ability? Will your child be continuing their education in Japan? Is learning Japanese important to their future education? What High School or College do you want to place them in?
On top of these considerations are a whole host of questions regarding the Japanese educational system, school accreditation, costs and many more.
For this reason the American Chamber of Commerce is hosting the LEARN Seminar on Sunday February 12 at the LOFT Building at Nadya Park. The seminar is free for parents to attend and there will be representatives from a number of educational institutions spanning pre-school to high school.
The seminar is comprised of three panel discussions by educators addressing various stages of education. The first discussion will deal with pre-school education. The second panel discussion will address elementary education and deciding to enroll your child in an international school. The third panel discussion will focus on secondary education and key considerations for choosing an international secondary school.
The seminar begins at 13:00 and each discussion will last for 45 minutes with a 15 minute break between each discussion. There will be a room set aside for educational institutions to disseminate information and set up times for school visitation. A play area for kids will also be available.
Here is the schedule:
Discussion 1: 13:00 to 13:45
Pre-School – Introduction to International pre-schools in Nagoya
Discussion 2: 14:00 to 14:45
Elementary Education – Deciding to enroll your child in an International School
Discussion 3: 15:00 to 15:45

Between sessions refreshments will be served in the adjoining room
