My name is Joanne. I am English and doing my degree in England. As part of my degree in Childhood Studies I am currently researching for an essay on Educare in Japan. I would be grateful for any personal accounts about your experiences and feelings about the educare system in Japan, as I think that this would give me a valuable insight.

I am a American who is also working on my Early Education Degree. I would greatly like to read some of the responses to this question.

Newspaper article in the Shanghai Star on the state of daycare provision in Japan dated June 2001:
The one mother's lament rang like an exact mimicry of my experience. "Come back when the baby is born." and then only to be told there is no space. (For me this was in November 1996.) Now I tell everyone who asks me, don't take the bureaucrats discouraging remarks to heart. Fill out the application forms in spite of the negative persuasion. They like nothing better than when you leave without even trying.
