When children enter kindergarten, they take their first steps into society.
At Nakamura Shirayuri Kindergarten, we respect the independence and creativity of each child.
Through our daily interaction with the children, we encourage them to think for themselves and to learn to accomplish things on their own.We believe this is the best environment for the child to develop both mentally and physically.
By helping each individual to develop their own personalities, we endeavor to nurture globally-minded children.
Please join us in raising your children to meet their future challenges.
All of our kindergarten staff (teachers, office staff, kitchen staff, bus drivers, etc.) work together to help the children reach their full potential.
