Schooling support/applications

There are many types of daycare in Japan. There is nursery (hoikuen), which is generally for families with working parents. Then from age 3-5 there is kindergarten (yochien). This often finishes at 2pm, but these days there are more suitable options for working parents. Then there are company daycares, unlicensed daycares, kodomoen (a mix of yochien and hoikuen) and more. All with their own application systems. We can help you navigate this complex system of paperwork and deadlines in order to help your child get into the best school possible.We can offer one-time services, such as calling one school for your and asking questions, or arranging your visit. Or we offer a comprehensive package involving researching your local options for you, arranging your school visits, accompanying you to the visit and filling out your application documents.
