Preschool in Azabu, Tokyo. <Pal International Preschool>

The first five years of your child's life is the most important time for laying the foundation for their future. Preschool years should build emotional, physical, social and intellectual skills which aid your child for the rest of his/her life.

In order to achieve our goals, at PAL each child is given the freedom to make choices during "Choice Time", enhancing their critical thinking skills. During "Choice Time", children are invited to choose from a wide range of experiences, varied from day to day, enabling them learn through natural curiosity and exploration.

1. Emotional

Gaining independence in a social setting and learning to cope using one's own emotional resources is an important skill. Through our daily routine and curriculum, children interact with each other in an atmosphere that allows them to express the full range of their emotions. We believe that this is essential for developing every child's future emotional well- being.

2. Physical

During the day we engage in diverse activities that enhance the development of both fine motor and gross motor skills. Natural physical abilities can be developed through play with others or even by playing alone. This style of play encourages children to progress and test their own physical strength.

3. Social

Interacting in a group is essential to building firm social skills. Especially during our organized "Choice Time", children are encouraged to communicate and express their feelings.

4. Intellectual

The desire to learn is a natural feeling. Throughout the day, children receive intellectual stimulation by having access to an array of educational materials and activities chosen with care by our dedicated teachers.

5. Cultural

A special blend of children and teachers from different countries and cultures makes our school particularly rich in diversity. By learning together, the children can enjoy and understand each other's cultural uniqueness.

PAL International School is a loving, nurturing, and safe environment, providing learning opportunites and cross-cultural experiences to children aged 6 months to 6 years. We provide age appropriate education, nurturing children's social, emotional, intellectual, cultural, and physical selves through play and study in a fun environment.


We strive to respect each child, nourishing their individuality with highly personalized programs and plenty of personal attention.


Our teachers are caring, motivated and qualified professionals who, like our students, come from a variety of different cultural backgrounds.


Our goal is to lay the foundations for our students' futures, by building their emotional, physical, social, intellectual and cultural skills.

Our 5 preschool classes and afternoon program provide your child with a safe, secure and nurturing environment to grow, develop and learn. We ensure that each class has enough teachers to provide high quality care for your child. We believe that allowing your child to blossom in such an environment is the ideal preparation for our kindergarten classes.
