Philosophy of YBS After school

The place students spend their after school time is very important. Especially with those who have working parents, after school care should be a place where children feel safe, comfortable and loved. In addition, having fun and being stimulated is very important for their learning and growth. They learn so many things through each experience by interacting with other students. The time they spend in Japan is going to be a very special time in their lifetime. We would like as many students to experience , have real exposure to Japanese culture, and meet lots of people to share their precious time with. Our students possibilities are infinite and we would like them to bloom as vast as possible! At YBS after school, students can be social, creative, curious, adventurous and confident.
