UPDATE

Nursery School, Kindergarten, ECEC center

In Japan, school years start every April. For those wishing to send their children in a nursery or a kindergarten from April, applications are made around October-January. Please note that residence registration is required before applying at the local municipal office when your potential nursery is publicly-owned. Enterying any nursery or kindergarten may be difficult in some areas due to a severe over-demand situation. Please collect necessary information in advance from your local municipal office and prepare early for the application.
