Application for Childcare Services
We are doing the best to build an environment where children, parents and teachers can grow up and mature together. We always practice childcare at the children’s side, by taking into consideration each family’s background. We foster in children autonomy, assertiveness and accommodativeness, through diversified experiences in multi-age classrooms. We provide opportunities for children to take part in traditional Japanese activities and cultural workshops throughout the year. We are a Christian nursery and welcome families from all faiths.
