A Warm Welcome to
Komazawa Park International School!

As the principal of Komazawa Park International School, I am very happy to welcome you to our website. Komazawa Park International School is a high quality preschool committed to the intellectual, social, emotional and physical development of the children in our care.
Our curriculum is based on current best practices in early childhood education that recognize the importance of exploration and discovery through play-based activities. Furthermore, our staff is warm, responsive, and eager to support each child in his or her growing independence and self-confidence.
Children's play develops language ability, inner motivation, joy in learning, creativity, and problem solving, among many other skills. Our teachers plan lessons for the day with specific content and age-appropriate activities in mind.
In our school children feel safe and secure. They are valued and respected as the unique individuals they are. We are very proud of the fact that we give children time to spend in and with nature. These moments of wonder and fascination can both excite and calm children at the same time. At nearby Komazawa Park and in our garden and play yard, children benefit from developing a love and respect for our natural world that can last a lifetime.
Your child's early years are a precious and important time. They lay the foundation for getting the knowledge and skills needed for success in later school years, as well as in life. We hope that, as you are making a choice about the school your child will attend, you will give KPIS your consideration. Please feel free to schedule a visit or call if you have any questions.
Sincerely,
Diane Takao

PRINCIPAL'S BIOGRAPHY
Diane Takao has spent over 20 years in the field of early childhood education. Originally from Long Island, in New York, USA, she began her teaching experience as a volunteer in the Peace Corps, serving 2.5 years in central Africa as an English teacher. She later took an English teaching job in Tokyo where she met her husband, and together they have raised 3 sons. Ms. Takao became an assistant teacher at the international school her children attended. She obtained her teaching degree from Drexel University in Pennsylvania, USA and has taught at different preschools in both Tokyo and Yokohama. Her passion for educating young children according to best practices has led her, over the years, to trust research-based and research-tested ideas in the curriculum. It is her strong belief that a good preschool foundation is the most important investment parents make in their child's education.
