Children’s Club After School

If your child is going to elementary school next year, and there is no one to take care of him or her after school because both parents are working, a “Children’s Club” could help you. Children can play and study with friends at a Jidoukan (児童館, children’s hall) or elementary school. There is at least one teacher with the kids.

Children: elementary grades 1-3
Fee: 4000 yen/month
Club Time: Monday to Friday after school until 18:00 (National holidays: 8:30 to 18:00)
How to apply:

In case of Public Children’s Club:
You can download the application form and fill it out, then you can submit it to the Jidoukan that which you wish to use. You have to submit the form from 17th December to 18th January next year.

If you would like Private Children’s Club, you can ask how to apply by phone from 15:00 to 18:00.
