THE SYSTEM

As a measure against COVID-19, our children remain in the same group with the same teachers and the same group of children all day. The children learn through play and our age-appropriate curriculum in the morning. In the afternoon, they eat lunch, take a nap, and do afternoon activities (e.g. listen to the teacher who reads books, draw pictures, etc.)

The Nakayoshi Preschool is operated on a year-round system. The school year starts in September and ends after the summer session in August, with a one-week break between graduation and the start of the summer session. We accept new students throughout the year.
