Kindergarten In Japan

I have a close affinity for all things Japanese and I have many Japanese friends. News of the recent earthquake and tsunami has been difficult for me to absorb.

I thought I would share with Mr. Kindergarten readers this video about a Japanese kindergarten near Tokyo.

Just click on this link to see the movie which is a little less than five minutes long.

Movie about Japanese Kindergarten

Thanks for Michaela Wilding for tipping me off to this one.

WOW, this is very unusual for Japan! It would be nice if more people began to have this philosophy of kindergarten! I wish we in the United States had this philosophy. It saddens me that we seem to be going backwards in time instead of moving forward in education.
I have a strong love for Japan. My father was in the military and I lived in Japan as a teenager. I have many friends from Japan and have been stunned by the horrific events that have taken place over the last two days.
