The English Language Program for Japanese Mothers

At Highrock, we offer an ELL (English Language Learners) class for women who have just moved from Japan, who are busy raising children, or who haven't had a chance to improve their English.

In each class, the ELL instructor teaches conversational English, proper English pronunciation, and topics in American culture. An ELL textbook is utilized.

Childcare is provided for mothers with children at home. During the childcare time, the children sing English songs, do simple English activities, and have free play. Children of any age are welcome.

Dropoff begins at 9:05am. We have free play and a circle time during our time together. After circle time, the children will have a snack and some more play time until the end of class at 10:30am.

Note: Childcare services offered by this program are not licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care or by any other state agency. Each child may not attend more than 4 hours per day, or more than 6 days per month.
