Nice to meet you all.
Montessori education has been gaining more and more attention in recent years both in Japan and here in Australia, and more and more parents want their children to receive Montessori education. In the background, it seems that the world's pioneers and leaders have also received the education.
This holistic education is very profound, and when I studied in Japan and Europe, I was deeply moved by the education that believes in the inner strength of each child. Seeking the essence of it, I have learned a lot from my practice at a Montessori kindergarten in Japan, my own child-rearing, and from my daily life with the children here in Brisbane.
Childhood is the most important period for the development of a child's lifelong personality, and we want to support the children growing up here in Australia to live happy and confident lives full of the desire to absorb and grow on their own. I sincerely hope that you will be able to do so. In March 2018, I opened this children's house with the hope that in the future I would like you to spread your wings in the wide world that you have chosen.
I look forward to working together with parents and guardians to watch over the development and growth of the amazing powers hidden within the children, and to be able to help them on a daily basis.
