THE CHILDREN AT JAPAN GRAMMAR SCHOOL
The children at Japan Grammar School are encouraged explore, investigate and learn from different
materials, mediums and situations, learning to negotiate and co-operate with adults and other children
during their time here.
The first days
A child who is tense or unhappy will not be able to learn properly, so it is important for parents and pre-
school staff to work together to help the child to feel confident and secure in the group. This takes longer
for some children than for others and parents should not feel worried if their child takes a while to settle.
Settling in without tears (IMPORTANT INFORMATION)
Leaving your child at JGS can be quite hard especially if it is the first time for you. Whilst it marks a
big step in your child's life, it does not have to be a tearful and painful one. There are three stages in
settling in children and following these should lead to having a more or less tear free goodbye. Ignoring or
rushing the stages is potentially damaging to your child and may result in your child bed-wetting, becoming
clingy or having sleepless nights. You can avoid these consequences by taking the time with the setting to
settle in your child.
Please note that children under4 years old may need a little more time for each of the stages:
Stage 1 - Familiarisation (Visit 1)
This stage is the first step towards helping your child to settle in. The aim of this stage is to help your child
feel familiar with their environment.
Children visit JGS during a session and stay for about an hour and a half. Show your child where the
toilet is, play with your child and point out what play activities there are. Do not expect your child to want to leave you or to play with others. Let your child's key-teacher play alongside you.
Stage 2 - Forming an attachment (Visit 2 and 3. if needed)
As well as feeling familiar with a new place, young children also need to become familiar with the people
who work at JGS. This stage encourages the child to feel comfortable with their key-worker. This is
an important stage and relies on you gradually distancing yourself from the child, helping the child to learn to stay with their key-teacher. Try to visit JGS at least twice a week so that your child quickly gets to
know the routine and their key-Teacher.
Stage 3 - Gradual separation (Visit 3 or 4)
The aim of this stage is to try out some small separation.
When your child is playing happily, the key-teacher or Manager will ask you to go out of the room to
get something for them. Ask the child if you can just pop out, as you will only be a minute. Go out of the room and swiftly return. If your child is very unhappy, try returning to stage 2.
When your child is playing happily, the key-worker or Manager will ask you if you can go and get
something away from the premises (you can maybe wait in the committee room). Tell your child
that you have been asked to get something and you will not be long. Pop out of the room for 5 - 10
minutes. The Manager can always call you to come back in if your child is unhappy. It is normal for
some children to 'protest' for a few minutes, but if they are ready to separate from you they will
quickly settle down to play.
Exceptions to the above would include a child who has attended day care in the past, or a child who has had
an older brother or sister at JGS, so the setting will already be familiar to them, you would still be
expected to stay for at least one session, please note this is at the Managers discretion.
Please note we will always take the needs of the individual child into consideration, and any decision about
the individuals settling in procedure will be made by the keyteacher/manager in association with the child’s
THE ADULTS AT JAPAN GRAMMAR SCHOOL
We are proud of the high ratio of adults to children in our group. This ensures individual attention to the
needs and development of each child.
The staff at JGS are highly motivated and working towards providing exceptional play
opportunities for your child. All our staff regularly attend training courses. Our members of staff like to be
called by their first name and they are:
IRSHAD AHMAD MUGHAL
( DIRECTOR )
The overall management of school and ultimate legal responsibilities are vested in the Management
Committee (analogous to a school governing body). The committee is made up of parents or affiliated/co-
opted individuals who are elected at the Annual General Meeting. Names and contact details are displayed
on a notice board in SCHOOL.
JGS hopes very much that you will never need to complain about our service. However, no
organisation is perfect and we have a comprehensive complaints policy. In essence it involves 3 stages:
Discussing the matter with staff
Discussing the matter with committee
Referring the matter to Executive Director
Please refer to the full prospectus and or notice board for more information.
WHAT TO WEAR
It is compulsory for the children to wear JGS uniform (i.e. plain red top – with or without
school logo), as well as protecting their ‘own’ clothes; it helps them to feel part of the club. JGS
shirts, shawlar, and scarf are available for purchase from the Business & Finance Manager; in addition black fleet boats or shoes are compulosry to wear for all students.
It is absolutely essential that for any trip offsite your child wears a red top.
Please ensure that all scarfs, boots, lunchboxes etc are CLEARLY marked with your child's name.
The children sit down for a healthy snack in the middle of the morning and the afternoon sessions. JGSl follows the government’s healthy eating policy. All students will bring healty stuff from homes and we encourage them to eat healthy stuff.
Please ensure you have made us aware of any allergies which your child has, forms are available
from school if you think your information is incorrect or needs updating.
FUNDING AND FEES
JGS is constructed by Iraj Education & Development Foundations and funded by the Embassy of Japan. No organization provides its organizational and management cost, therefore, it depends on collection of fees from students and their parents. Total monthly fees of each child is 500 PPKR and 1000 PKR registration fees. Books, uniform, shoes, and any other costs of stationar and photocopies etc. is responsibility of parents. All parents will pay their dues before 10th of each month.
Fees are payable half-termly and costs are reviewed on a regular
basis, although we aim to give parents at least 1 month’s notice of any increase. Fees continue to be
payable if a child is absent without notice for a short time. If you choose to withdraw your child from
JGS through a term, the fees for that half term cannot be refunded, funding is also
non-transferable. We are unable to give refunds for any holidays that are taken during the school term-time. Additionally, we are unable to give a refund if a child is absent due to illness. In
cases of prolonged absence, parents should consult the Committee who will take a final decision.
ILLNESS, ACCIDENTS & EMERGENCIES
Please do not bring your child to JGS if they are unwell. Our staff will ask you to take home a child
who appears ill or feverish on arrival or will contact you should your child develop these signs during a
session. We hope you understand that this is for the benefit of the other children and staff.
If you are keeping your child at home due to illness, please inform a member of staff so that they can alert
other parents if it is likely that there may be an outbreak of a contagious illness such as chickenpox.
If your child has been ill with sickness or diarrhoea, please allow a period of at least 48 hours after the last
bout to elapse before bringing them back to JGS.
If your child becomes ill during a session, parents will be notified promptly. For this reason we ask all
parents to provide emergency contact numbers and to keep us updated with any changes.
Existing Injury Form
Parents are required to complete an existing injury form, should their child attend school with an injury
sustained outside of the setting. Forms will be located by the signing in book, once you have completed the form please hand it to your child’s key-teacher or the Manager.
In the case of accidents or the need for medical treatment, the Manager and staff would make every effort
to contact parents immediately. In the event that this is not possible, we consider it in your child's best
interests if we had your permission to act on your behalf for the child. Please complete the letter of
consent that is included in your registration pack, but note this is not compulsory.
The letter of consent also includes some optional clauses, which parents are asked to sign which allows
JGS staff to seek emergency treatment or, for example, supervise the use of an asthma inhaler or
apply a plaster if necessary. Written permission from the parent is required for any type of medication or
treatment, which you would like members of staff to administer during a session. If your child uses an
inhaler you will be required to train all members of staff in its use and sign a disclaimer before you can
leave your child at the school.
The safety of the children at JGS is of utmost importance. Equipment in the room is checked on a
regular basis. All dangerous materials, such as cleaning materials, are stored out of reach of the children.
Children are not permitted in the kitchen area or store cupboards. All our cleaning products comply with
the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations.
Feel Free and contact with us for any matters of addmissions
or other things for information.
