Child Care Center

Author: YMCA, Issue: March 2006, Topic: Children

A new childcare center will start for the 2-3 year-old kids this April 3rd at Takezono 2 chome near to the intersection of Higashi Odori and Minami Odori. It is organized by the YMCA and thus has a Christian base. However every child is welcome regardless nationality or religion. The goal of the childcare is to instill in the children a considerate heart, teach them to care about themselves and others, to learn about honesty, respect and responsibility.

Activities will include games, paper crafts, singing songs and also going to the park for outdoor activities.

The staff can communicate in English, and so parents who can not speak Japanese do not need to worry about communications.

The hours are from Monday to Friday, 8:00am to 6:00pm. You can decide the time to send your kids with your own schedule in mind, with a minimum of 4 hours per day and 3 times per week.

Lunch is to be brought from home (however rice will be provided). Snacks will be provided.
