Our daily activities are carefully planned to help promote independence and to develop curious learners who are not afraid to ask questions about the world around them.

We understand that success in school requires support from both parents and the school. By promoting our core values of respect towards peers and teachers alike, we foster an understanding of each other’s cultures and a love of learning.


We look forward to welcoming you and sharing more about what makes our school so special.


It is our belief that children should be valued as unique individuals.


We want children to develop a sense of responsibility for their own learning process and to appreciate their journey to be the best versions of themselves. 

We encourage them to be curious, to ask questions, and not be afraid of making mistakes. Our job is to ensure that their journey will be meaningful and fun.

We provide a nurturing learning environment to guide children to express their ideas with confidence and creativity. 

We guide children to respect each other by being caring, balanced, and open-minded.

—  Steve and Erin T. (former St. Mary's/Seisen principal/teacher)

“We were fortunate enough to have our children attend Keiki for a combined total of seven years. The warm and nurturing environment that Ben, Mie, and their staff have created helped our children develop into confident, happy, and successful learners. Our children left Keiki well-prepared for the next phase of their school careers at international schools. We miss Keiki and cherish the many fond memories of our time there, and we are happy to still be part of the Keiki family..” 

—  Rika T.


—  Aaron. R (former St. Mary's counselor)

"For the past year, both of my sons (aged 2 and 5) have attended Keiki Intercultural Preschool and the results have been fantastic. Both of my sons have flourished academically, socially, and emotionally.


As a career educator for many years (I'm the high school counselor at St. Mary's International School) I've been impressed by the energy, professionalism, and dedication of Keiki's teachers and support staff. Everything the teachers do aspires to the highest quality: art projects, field trips and amazing performances. The school administration understand the importance of cultivating an environment where learning is fun and a child's intellectual curiosity is nurtured and every element of their curriculum and programming reflects this. We will miss Keiki greatly when return to the states. I recommend Keiki to any parent looking for a warm and challenging environment for their child."
