Linscott has been favored as the best school in Santa Cruz area for the internship site by the Japanese ECE students.  You may have witnessed in the past six years, happy and enthusiastic students spending in lower grade-level classrooms in March every year.  This will be happening again in coming spring..

Many Linscott families have been hosting those students while they were here for two weeks.  Some families didn’t miss a year since this program began nearly ten years ago.  Beauty of the program is the students’ strong interest in your kid/s and the strong tie your kid/s build with them.  Their international friendship grew and stayed stronger far into the future.

This is an ECE exchange program between Cabrillo College and Bunkyo Gakuin University in Tokyo, Japan. Ken and Jinsu, former Linscott’s parents act as liason for Bunkyo and help the student to find the best families.  For the coming March we need some new families.  If interested, contact Ken or Jinsu for detailed info such as host family’s responsibilities, grocery compensation, daily schedule, etc.  ken_murakami@msn.com,  (831)685-1488.
