WHY CHOOSE BIM?
Born from our sister school, AIM, parents who choose BIM can be confident that we will have a similar standard of quality. We strive to maintain an intimate family-like community where children feel their classroom is a second home. Nestled in a quiet West Berkeley neighborhood, BIM feels like a welcoming place for families with roots to Japanese heritage, or for those wanting to give the gift a second language to their child.
BIM combines traditional Montessori education with a Japanese-English bilingual curriculum. With whole-child development, peace education through cultural exchange, bilingual language learning, and a strong parent-teacher partnership as our foundation, BIM aims to help raise empathetic children with a lifelong love of learning. Our team is a highly experienced group of educators who share the same vision and passion for early childhood education.
