Our vision is to provide a thriving, vibrantly diverse community that respects students, inspires teachers, supports families and enhances the community. Enriched by this model, our children are ready to take their place in the world. We strive to change the face of education by sharing our ideals. We nurture independence, a love of learning, cooperation, creative thinking and respect for self and others. We encourage protecting the global environment as well as fostering peace and harmony.

School Director

Mrs. Nina Moromikawa


I have been in Okinawa since 1999, married to my Japanese husband. We have a daughter. I achieved Montessori certification through the North America Montessori Training Center for Pre-School/Kindergarten through Lower Elementary. I also graduated with an associates degree in computer programming. My journey of Montessori started in 2001. I fell in love with the children and the Montessori environment the moment I started. I have been a Montessori teacher for 12 years and would continue serving children and their parents from the bottom of my heart.
