Our school

Machida International Kids school is a special place. We are a locally owned family run school with a tight knit community feel. Children attending MIK school come from all over the world so our approach caters to a diverse range of languages and cultures. Because we are a small school, we are able to give our students a lot of individual attention. We are a down-to-earth and friendly school with aspirations to keep things simple, transparent and fun for all stakeholders. We endeavour to give our children a solid early years foundation from which to launch their elementary school experience. We appreciate individual differences between children at the early years and at MIK, we endeavour to give all our students the freedom to be who they really are.​​​​

MIK 'Work and Play' After School program

The goal of the MIK afterschool program is to provide a fun, safe and immersive educational environment for children. ‘Work and Play’ as the name states, implements an inquiry based child centered approach to learning, which places an emphasis on functional knowledge, basic learning skills, inquiry, creativity, project learning and experimentation. We recognize the four C’s. Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking and Compassion in order to help our students become happy and well adjusted.
