Japan With Kids - Forums: Day Care in Japan: .Short Term Daycare
By Cornelia on Tuesday, June 6, 2000 - 3:43 pm:

Some might remember that I had a problem last December when my daughter got kicked out of daycare due to chicken pox. Well there was a place willing to take her! I just found her card:

Mrs. Inoue Motoko
Otowa 2-9-4-901
Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo 112-0013
tel: 090-1263-4935

The closest subway station would be Gokokuji station on the Yurakucho line. Pre-registration is required.

She is a member of the National Childminders Association and has two children of her own. Her husband is very supportive of her business venture. [If she is needed outside of the home, he will take care of their two children.]

I am a single mother who will be working in Tokyo for 2-3 months. Can anyone give me leads on daycare in the Akasaka area (I'm not sure what the various wards are). My office is near the US Embassy.

Or are there other alternatives. I don't want to have a full time nanny since my daughter, Ellie, has been in daycare and loves the interaction. She will be 2 1/2 years old.

During my daughter's first year at public daycare there was a baby from April to the end of August who was the son of a Swiss couple both enrolled at Sophia University. So apparently short-term is sometimes possible if there is an empty space and if the system has a guarantee that you won't be asking for more time... (The Japanese are very risk averse... if they perceive that there is a chance you will change your mind they would rather just say "no" from the start.)

I was planning on visiting Tokyo around December and was wondering if there was any Japanese speaking day care/preschool for a 2.5 year old. I will be there for about 2 weeks and would like her to have some exposure to the language. It doesn't have to be all day...just at least 3 hours would be nice. I had a friend who is Japanese who's family lived near Narita Airport tell me that she dropped off her kid at a public daycare and it costed only about 1000 yen a day for 3 hours. Is there anything like that around Kanda, Shibuya, Shinjuku area, or place close by? Thanks.
