Welcome to the YGK official website!
Please take a look at our educational policies and daily lives.

YMCA Global Kindergarten is an English Immersion Kindergarten run by Yokoama YMCA which has a 130-year history.
Our aim is to focus on nurturing the child`s mental and physical development thereby creating a healthier and happier environment enriched in love. YGK encourages children to become more independent by building a framework of self-confidence which they will be able to take with them even after leaving YGK.
