Course information

Tezukayama Global Academy Preschool Course Introduction

Kindergarten

The students receive a Montessori based education that uses a carefully curated diverse curriculum. The TGAP curriculum strives to develop the student's skills, capabilities and mindset required to become a successful future global leader whilst also aiming to acheive each and every child's full potential. With a max capacity of ten students per grade accepted coupled with our low teacher to student ratio, the students receive a personalised education that caters for each child's developmental requirements. 

Tezukayama Global Academy Preschool offers two main courses and various programmes for regular students. Our courses available for students that have been succesfully accepted into TGAP consist of our 3 year course and our 4 year course. Students are then distinguished by two seperate age groups, Kinder (3-5 years old) and PreKinder (1.5-3 years old).

All the information and variances can be found below.
