Kindergarten & Childcare First Classroom SETAGAYA

First Classroom Setagaya (Tokyo) has authentic practices for children to reach their highest potential with daily program of self-discovery experience.

Mixed-aged Class


Higher Mutual Development Function

At mixed-aged class environment, younger children respect and follow older ones to do and older children become model and partner for younger ones. Older children enhance confidence and compassion, gaining respect from younger ones. It is creating tremendous self-development power by vertical relationship which cannot be seen in same-aged class.




Enhancing Self-esteem and Leadership

Children might often bump each other with awareness of rival in same-aged class, however, Older children in mixed-aged class are always respected by younger ones and develop self-esteem. Oldest children get even conscious of top-leader in stages naturally.




Higher Challenging Spirit

When you start something, you are encouraged by seeing what older children do. Younger children feel that they can do what older ones do when they become same age. Each child has higher challenging spirit.




Highly Cooperative after Graduation as well

We are reported that graduates open up to both older and younger students immediately when they have collaborative work with mixed-aged group. Collaborative mentality which is not performed on-site only but connecting with further development is firmly founded on each child.
