In order to create global citizens who can play an active role in the world, we strive to provide children with Early Childhood English Education. "What can we/should we do for the children's future?" We constantly ask ourselves this question in order to be able to implement our teaching strategy, which is completely different from the one implemented at public schools. This is a strategy that can develop real communication skills. Not only do we work toward making dreams come true for the parents who care about their child but also we work toward motivating the children to find their own dreams and to work toward making their dreams come true. Blue Dolphins' dream is to create many leaders who can play an active role in the future. At Blue Dolphins, we follow these 6C educational policies:
「Communication, Cosmopolitan, Creativity, Challenge, Confidence, Caring」.
With the 6C policies in our mind, we implement our teaching strategy that helps students develop English skills as well as communication skills, in an environment
where they can learn and play IN English in a natural way.
At Blue Dolphins, we follow these 6C educational policies:
At Blue Dolphins, the class sizes are
kept small so that the teachers can
focus on each student.
In such teaching environment,
the teachers can see the progress of
each student and can find it rewarding
to be the reason why they improve.
At Blue Dolphins, we have
many employees who have been
working with us for a long time.
With our training system,
the longer you work with us,
the more you learn to improve
your teaching skills.
Also, Blue Dolphins is listed with
JASDAQ Standard which means
that the management is stabilized
and your employment is secured.
Blue Dolphins’ goal is to create
global citizens who can play an
active role all around the world.
By joining Blue Dolphins,
you will be working towards
reaching the goal with the children
and other members of Blue Dolphins.
You will be the one who helps the
children acquire English and
You will be the one who shapes
Hello, my name is Susan, and I have been living in Japan since 2014.
I have been working at BDA since February 2018, and it is the second company I have worked for in Japan.
The experiences I have had working at both companies are like night and day.
At BDA, I feel listened to and valued. I am constantly encouraged to express myself and make changes wherever it seems necessary.
If you are looking for a place with a great company culture, then BDA is the place for you!
Blue Dolphins staff
My name is Christiane Dees.
I have been working at Blue Dolphins for more than 15 years.
Since 2014, I have been the Manager of Blue Dolphins Takatsuki School, and as part of my job, I teach our 1st to 6th grade Elementary students.
Teaching kids of all ages has been an exciting and rewarding experience and also quite a challenge at times. Often I feel like I have learned just as much from them as they have from me.
Some kids come every day, so a teacher-student relationship in the beginning gradually changes into more of a family-like relationship.
That may have its pros and cons and involve even greater responsibility towards the kids and their families. However, I believe that it is mutual trust that makes the kids even more eager to learn, explore new ways and discover themselves. Kids’ brains work like sponges, which makes it so much fun to teach them.
Seeing the children become comfortable around foreigners, having them learn from us, and watching them speak English to each other so naturally has been a rewarding experience and makes me want to keep going.
Blue Dolphins Manager
My name is Boukje Bruinsma and I am originally from The Netherlands.
I have been living in Japan since 2008 and working for Blue Dolphins since 2009.
I am currently working at Blue Dolphins Takatsuki School.
When I came to Japan, I already had a Master’s degree in Cognitive Psychology as well as experience with language learning myself. However, although my research had also focused on bilingualism and cognitive linguistics, teaching English to children was new for me and therefore a big challenge. How do you use everything you have learned from books and transfer it to the classroom?
By evaluating my own lessons as well as receiving help and advice from the other Blue Dolphins’ staff, I became more confident.
I enjoy working here and seeing the results first hand.
It is great to see Japanese kids as young as 2 years old speaking English confidently.
I will continue to learn from my students and colleagues and do whatever I can to provide the best learning environment for all the students in my class.

Hello, my name is Mellissa and I have been teaching for more than seven years at Montessori and English schools.
I have been working at BDA since September 2017.
The experiences I have had working at BDA have been wonderful. During my first year, I was working at many different schools. I have met a lot of teachers and managers. I am so grateful to all of them because I have learned many things.
In addition, BDA has always appreciated dedication and service.
Lastly, I want to describe BDA through this, “Surround yourself with the dreamers and the doers, the believers and thinkers, but most of all surround yourself with those who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.”
So, what are you waiting for? Join our team!
