Our Passion for Nursery Education

We hope to assist mothers in their career pursuits in various fields by providing their children with day care service.

We also hope to provide children with an international environment where they will have opportunities to cultivate global awareness.

With these wishes in mind, MentecWorld Co., Ltd. is committed to starting a new type of nursery school in cooperation with local people.

Our Philosophy

At IKC, your children will receive loving care , meet people and make many new ‘discoveries’, through which we hope they will become receptive, responsive children, sound in both mind and body.

Our Goals

  • Children who are healthy in both mind and body
  • Children who can verbally express their mind
  • Children with global awareness
  • Children with compassion and consideration for others
  • Children who can readily express their gratitude and are open to new experiences

Our Educational Policy

Our Message to Children
We aim to foster children’s ability to enjoy making new discoveries, as well as to promote their mental and physical health.
Our Message to Local Residents
People and nature are our first priority. We hope to nurture children together with the local community.
Our Message to Interested Firms and Companies
We aim to create an ideal learning environment for children by introducing language training in more than four languages, thereby hoping to introduce them to multiculturalism.
