Provocations for Learning

Presented by Elana Leigh
Date: November 2, 2019
Play is the best way for a young child to learn. In the early years of a child’s life the way they learn to play, the resources they play with and the kind of engagement they ‘step’ into will contribute enormously to their development.

Environments should provide a place where children have opportunities to explore, learn and develop with the support of sensitive, knowledgeable adults. There should be access to prompts, artefacts and provocations to stimulate ideas and thought journeys.

Who we are

The executive board are directly connected to the preschool and larger education community in Tokyo via their full-time job responsibilities. We are excited about continuing our work to strengthen support for the preschool community and ultimately help to improve the experience of preschoolers and their families.

A message from the President

TAIP has been functioning as a non-profit association in the greater Tokyo area since 2005.

Over the years, we have continually grown and expanded membership by providing our main core mission values for the TAIP community. Our focus is to create opportunities for members to network within the education community, disseminate publicity for the ultimate benefit of the preschoolers, and organize and implement professional development for teachers, staff and administrators and promote parent education in regard to preschool education within the community. As an association for a diverse number of preschools, we endorse all school programs and offer equal support and opportunities for members, regardless of the size of the school.
