Early Childhood Education Allowance
From October 1, 2019, Free Early Childhood Education Allowance can be applied to KOBILS kindergarten, and we are also eligible to receive a monthly subsidy of up to 37,000 yen. In order to receive the subsidy, you must apply to your local municipality and meet the requirements for employment, etc. At KOBILS Kindergarten, more than 80 percent of the students receive the subsidy. According to the city of Kobe, those who will be entering the kindergarten in April of the next school year are advised to submit their applications by the end of November, so if you are planning to enter the kindergarten next year, please submit your application as soon as possible. Currently, we are interviewing new kindergartners, but there are still a few spots available.
