July 2021 – Summer and Tanabata!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our July special blog.

When we think about Summer, there are two events that everyone is so excited about! Of course, they’re  Shaved Ice party and the Tanabata festival!


We were all excited to do the role-play at the shaved Ice party, we did take turns on how to make, serve and enjoy it!


"May I have some more Shaved Ice please!"

“May I have some more Shaved Ice please!”

It was so delicious!!!

And for celebrating the Tanabata festival (also known as the Star Festival), we wrote our wishes in small strips of paper (called Tanzaku), and hang them on our bamboo tree in the hope that they’ll come true.

April 2021 – Welcome to Sunrise!

Hello everyone!


Welcome back to our monthly blog for April. This month’s blog is very special as we welcome everyone back and say hello to our new Sunrise Kids! It is also a month of many exciting new firsts for our new and, of course, older Sunrise kids.




The new Caterpillars were still nervous to join everyone at first but our Hungries and Butterflies were very warm and helpful to the new kids, and eventually made them feel at home.







It was also the new kids’ first time to join an Easter party, the Sunrise Kids way. The Hungries and Butterflies were very competitive hiding and looking for eggs in the Daisy and Clover room while the Littles were enjoying their Easter Hunt in the Sunflower room.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the Sunrise Kids Easter party without the special surprise gift from the Easter Bunny! Everyone was so happy to receive cute Easter stickers.




It was also the Shiny Butterflies’ first time to go to their pool and soccer lessons. Some were nervous and scared at first but eventually enjoyed the lessons and had a lot of fun!

Another first time for the new Fluttery Butterflies is turtle cleaning. Everyone was so brave grabbing the turtles and cleaning the tank!

April was a really busy day for everyone, but it was also a lot of fun! We hope you had a fun, busy April too! And we’ll be seeing you next month. Bye!

March 2021 – Graduation!

Hello everyone and welcome to the final blog entry for the 2020 school year!

It’s been a year of fun, sadness and everything in between, so let’s hope that the following year can replicate such fantastic times!


As always, our final blog of the year follows the Fluttery Butterflies as they graduate and fly off to elementary school!



And here they are now!


All dressed up for their big day!


You can’t have a graduation ceremony without certificates.


A very proud boy with his graduation certificate.


Many beautiful words were spoken as the graduates delivered their speeches.


Following this, the graduates shared their journey from little caterpillars to B.I.G, Big Butterflies!


I once was two but now I’m three! I’m as big as I can be!


Then the Shiny Butterflies sang their farewell song, “Bye Butterfly.”


Then the Shiny Butterflies also shared some wonderful words as they gave the graduates their flower gifts.


Finally, a group photo to round off this magical celebration.

And there it is, a fabulous ceremony. We laughed and we cried, but we must remember that graduation is a happy day. A day for both parents and teachers to be proud of the fine young children that the graduates have become.

And with that, we bid you farewell. We’ll see you again next year when we will have more, super fun events!

Take care!

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone!


2020 has been a tough year for everyone but 2021 is here to bring us new hope and new beginnings. Everyone in Sunrise Kids kicked off 2021 by doing different fun-filled activities!



Starting with the Caterpillars, Littles and Hungries got their hands dirty and sticky with paint and glue making their 2021 memory book!









The Shiny Butterflies had so much fun making their 2021 funky sunglasses! They had to do a lot of cutting and gluing too!








The Flutteries were also very busy writing what they did for their winter holiday and doing a lot of Eiken preparations!







And finally, everyone ended their first month of 2021 with a fun marathon! Here are some of the shots of their run!IMG_1147

We hope you enjoyed reading about our January! We hope to see you again next month with more fun filled activities!

See you later!

October – Happy Halloween!

Hello everyone!


Welcome back to the monthly blog of October.


When we think of October, there’s only one event everyone is excited about! And of course, it’s Halloween!

It is the only month when you can see everywhere lots of jack-o-lanterns, spider webs and even monsters! The most special thing in Halloween is that everyone can wear any costumes and can become anything they want to be. It doesn’t need to be scary, you could even be a superhero!


Before the October ended, everyone celebrated Halloween and had a big party altogether. We all played and sang our favorite Halloween songs. And all the Caterpillars, Butterflies and, even the teachers, did a Halloween fashion show and had the chance to walk on the runway and do their scariest or cutest poses!












After the fashion show, we all went to the park and did trick or treating! Everyone was excited to go look for different monsters to get their treats! A lot of parents also joined the party and made all the kids very happy.












Everyone had a blast in the party and doing trick or treating!


I hope you and your family also had a fun and spooky Halloween! See you again next month!

June – Father’s Day

Hello everyone!


Welcome to the monthly blog of June.


June is a special month where we celebrate our dads through Father’s Day. This month, everyone in Sunrise made a special gift for our dads and talked about the things they do for us. We even sang a Father’s Day song, ‘I love him and he loves me too and daddy is his name, oh! D-A-D-D-Y.’ Everyone had lots of fun making crafts and singing for our dads!



The Caterpillars worked really hard to make tie crafts for their dads!



They were very colorful and cute!IMG_4431




The Shiny Butterflies made these big cards for theirs too!



They made colorful fingerprint ties and even drew their dads’ faces!





The Fluttery Butterflies made these amazing trophies for theirs for being the best dads ever!IMG_4582




Here in Sunrise, we would want to thank all the dads out there for always taking care of us and giving us the best love. I hope you enjoyed our crafts as much as everyone did doing them!



Have a nice day!

April – Easter Party

Hello everyone and welcome to the monthly blog for April!

April is a month in which many people celebrate Easter. A time when the Easter bunny brings chocolate eggs for everyone to search for and then eat! We continue the tradition here at Sunrise (minus the eating of chocolate eggs) and have lots of fun making baskets to hold our eggs!


We started making our Easter baskets!


Cutting, sticking and decorating!


Glue the sides together!


Adorn the basket with eggs and a handle!


Glue on some colorful lollipop sticks!


The Caterpillars made their baskets using two bowls!


They decorated with crayon and stickers!


Hop little bunnies, hop, hop, hop!


Let’s search for eggs!


I found so many eggs!


Where will the magic egg lead us?


What’s in this basket?


It was a sticky surprise!


The Easter Bunny brought us some bunny and egg stickers which we said a big thank you for! We hope everyone had fun and we look forward to a visit from the Easter Bunny again, next year. Take care everyone and keep hopping!


Hello and welcome to the final special lesson blog for this year – and Mr. Martin’s final blog as a Sunrise teacher!

Well, it being March there was only one thing that this blog could be about – graduation! The Fluttery Butterflies prepared well all through March towards their final, special day. They learned their speeches, the practiced the songs (in English and in Japanese!) and they learned where to stand and, most importantly, how to sit nicely! It was a wonderful day for everyone involved and all the Sunrise teachers would like to thank the parents who came along to make the day so special.

We’d also like to give a special big thank you to the parents for the events they planned after the official graduation ceremony. The quiz, songs, and improvised dancing (thank you Ishin!) was lots and lots of fun.

And from me, Mr Martin, I would like to thank the parents, teachers and of course Sunrise Kids who made the last three years so memorable. I wish you all the best for the future.
