THE SYSTEM

The Preschool has adopted the combined system of preschool and day care. All our students learn through play and our program in the morning. The children who remain in the afternoon spend the rest of the day eating lunch, taking a nap, listening to the teacher read picture books and other activities.

The Nakayoshi Preschool is operated on a year-around 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.
