    Are international schools eligible for free tuition?

    Some international schools are eligible for free early childhood education and childcare.

    Under the Cabinet Office's "New Child and Childcare Support System," from October 1, 2019, children aged 3 to 5 who use kindergartens, daycare centers, certified childcare facilities, etc. will be eligible for free usage fees. Ta.

    However, since international schools are equivalent to "unlicensed childcare facilities," they are actually "reduced" rather than "free."

    To be eligible for free (reduced) fees

    To be eligible for free (reduced) childcare, you must receive certification from the municipality where you live that childcare is necessary.

    You will need to meet employment requirements such as working 46 hours or more per month, so it is a good idea to check with your municipality.

    What is the amount that will be waived (reduced)?

    For children between the ages of 3 and 5, monthly payments up to 37,000 yen are free.

    Additionally, children aged 0 to 2 from households exempt from resident tax will be free of charge up to 42,000 yen per month.
