About CLC International Preschool

CLC was established in September 1996 by Maya Imura and Kathleen Masuoka. Being one of the first `American-style` preschools in Fukuoka, it continues to provide a nurturing, bilingual environment for many expatriate and Japanese children.

CLC's teachers are U.S. trained and licensed in elementary and early childhood education with many years of experience teaching children of diverse cultures.

CLC is located in the central ward of Fukuoka City with easy access to bus and subway lines.


At CLC our goals are to:

provide a safe, positive environment in which each child can develop healthy self-esteem and an awareness of self as an individual with choices and responsibilities.

encourage each child to become an independent and creative thinker.

give each child the opportunity to learn in a fun, natural way through play and social interaction.


At CLC we use a theme-based approach to provide a variety of experiences that encourage curiousity and discovery. Instruction is in English and students are guided to communicate and socialize in English.
The morning program is for children 2 - 6 years of age. The afternoon program caters to children ages 3 - 6 who are already enrolled in a Japanese program. CLC also provides English language classes for children on Saturdays.
