Accredited daycare-kindergartens combine the functions of kindergartens and nursery schools. A child may receive a combination of pre-school education and day-care whether or not a child’s parents/guardians work during the daytime. Parents/guardians may also receive various services including consultation services regarding the raising of children.
There are four types of accredited daycare-kindergarten: cooperation type, kindergarten type, day-care type, and unaccredited type. You are advised to check carefully as the facilities and administrative methods vary for each type.
