“Little children, from the moment they are weaned, are making their way toward independence”  by Maria Montessori


Welcome to First Classroom Setagaya in Tokyo. We are global-scoped kindergarten with its philosophy and authentic practice for children to develop curiosity, creativity and independence through experiences of self-discovery. We believe that each child has unique and limitless potential of excellence and success, guiding them to reach their highest potential.


First Classroom Setagaya, small-sized classroom founded in 2007, has been inspiring children to pursue joy of learning and build confidence . 0ur educational approach differs from many of our peers which traditionally in Japan continue one-size-fits-all approach. Our graduates are all self-confident and motivated with thoughtful compassion in the community. Some of them are enjoying the challenging opportunities outside of country in global field.


FCS features small-sized and mixed-aged class which enables each individual to form strong attachment of emotional base with teachers and have a variety of chances for their own self-discovery. Children learn respectful approach each other for co-developing in mixed-aged environment and older children cultivate sense of leadership by becoming models and gaining respect from younger ones.


Visit the classroom and witness children who are in joyful journey of learning toward independence. We look forward to meeting you soon.
