Established in 1985, Tokyo International School Group (TISG) runs Tokyo International School Afterschool (TISAS), Tokyo International School Kindergarten (TISKG) and Tokyo International School Learning Through English (TISLTE) at our Nakameguro and Minami Azabu model school campuses in Tokyo. We also have franchise campuses based in Kachidoki (Chuo-ku), Minato Mirai (Yokohama), Oimachi (Shinagawa), Maruyama (Sapporo), Shukugawa (Kobe), and Ohori (Fukuoka).
TISKG is a three-year international kindergarten program that provides an immersion environment (children must attend at least 3 days per week) for non-native English speaking children. Students attend classes from 9:15 am until 2 pm. The first year of this program is an immersion focus where the aim is to build a solid base of communicative ability. In the second year, the students are introduced to the inquiry learning model and this style of learning is further reinforced in the third year. The maximum number of students per class is 14.

RECRUITMENT PROCESS: TISG is providing a recruitment service for Eishinkan. TISG will screen resumes to check that minimum requirements are met. Candidates who meet the requirements will be contacted to arrange face-to-face interviews for teachers who are able to come to our Tokyo HQ or Skype web-interviews for those who can’t. Candidates will be asked to bring with them their residence card, passport, copies of qualifications and letters of reference. Following the first round of interviews candidates will be short-listed for the second round of interviews, which will include a trial lesson. These second-round interviews will be conducted with Eishinkan staff and they will make the final decision. Once that final decision has been made TISG will contact all candidates to inform them of the decision. The successful candidate will meet with Eishinkan to sign employment documentation.
