The Staff at Creative-English are committed to providing a warm caring positive environment for all involved with the service. This ensures that children are able to develop to their fullest potential at their own pace and to gain independence and positive self-esteem.
Founder - Naoko (Koko) Forsberg
Naoko founded Creative English in summer 2013 with the aim of creating the kind of academic environment within which she felt her two children would best be able to flourish. She worked hard to find the right location and a dedicated team, and the school has been expanding ever since.
Naoko is Japanese and married to an Australian so her children are being raised in a bilingual home. She wanted their dual language skills to be supported through their school work too. She is constantly looking for ways to improve the school, drawing on her experience of raising children between two cultures.

Operation Manager/Admin - Mari
I was a very talkative girl and wanted to communicate with more people, not just with Japanese. That made me start taking English lessons. Although I haven't studied abroad, I can communicate in English without any difficulties and I got a chance to work in the United States.
After my daughter was born, I have been interested in English education for kids. My daughter learns English at Creative English, and she is a bilingual now.
