Chateau School: a new concept in international education

By on January 2, 2013
The chic area of Omotesando is not only the mecca of fashion but also the new home to Chateau School. The building is reminiscent of a French chateau overlooking a miniature fountain.  Chateau School is not your traditional early learning center.  It employs a teaching style founded on Montessori principles taught in English with a variety of enrichment programs added in between.  

Where early learners are called pupils in a traditional learning setting, children admitted to Chateau ranging from ages 0 until 12 years old are called “diplomats”.  Every morning, these so-called diplomats present a passport on check-in to be admitted to the classrooms. Here’s something unique – diplomats at Chateau are exposed to a minimum of three foreign languages from the age of three! A multi-lingual program called Chateau School World Diplomacy offers a choice of English, Mandarin, Japanese, French, Spanish or Arabic.
Poised to be future globe trotters too, diplomats at Chateau are exposed early to field trips for hands-on learning and interactiveness. These trips offer educational benefits and take their mind away from the usual classroom setting. Examples of places they go to are the United Nations University library, cultural spots, foreign embassies, space centers, museums and galleries, theater, antique shops, technology laboratories, perfumery and others.
Typical activities at Chateau range from music, arts and craft to world projects. Academic subjects are categorized into two: World diplomacy and Montessori subjects plus a wide range of after-school activities. Chateau’s educational package is new and essentially 21st century-friendly!
