Massage from our leader
We want to create a kindergarten where children from all over the world can attend with a smile. With this in mind, I founded the MLS.
Aguascalientes, located in the central highlands of Mexico, is a town that has been greatly developed by the advance of automobile-related companies, and there are many Japanese expatriates living here.
Many families moving to the country will be sending their pre-school children to a kindergarten or preschool. The language of the local kindergarten is Spanish or English. Many children who move to a new country are confused by the language barrier. There are also many parents who wish to ensure that their children have time to learn Japanese language and culture before they start school in Japan or a Japanese school.
MLS is an international school where children of Japanese origin come to school every day with smile. At MLS, children come to school every day with energy and enthusiasm, and are greeted with "Ohayo", "Thank you! Children from Mexico, Japan, America, China, Thailand, Indonesia, etc... come to MLS to play with smiles on their faces using their common language. Language is just a way to get along with friends and teachers.
Missions of My Little Sunshine
● To provide an environment where Japanese and Mexican children can go to the school without any worries and where children from any country can get along with each other.
● While childcare is provided in English, there is time every day for children to learn both their mother tongue and English, the international language.
● Open the school as an after-school program for elementary and junior high school students, providing a place where they can gather at any time to do their homework and play.
We hope that the children who grew up in the International Kindergarten and After School program "My Little Sunshine" will become a bridge to connect the world.
