NEWS

2018/1/29: Fulltime and parttime spots are available for ages 36 month & up

  • 3 different types of childcare combined into one.

    Sakura Childcare combines the best of all three types of childcare into one:
    1) a Childcare centre with a fulltime experienced Early Childhood Educator on-staff,
    2) a Family Childcare which is similar to a traditional family setting, and
    3) a Japanese Language school which provides all kinds of programs in Japanese and promotes learning Japanese culture.

  • High Staff to Children ratio.

    The maximum total children we are eligible take is 7 and we have 2 to 3 staff supervising all the time. This ratio is higher than the required regulation and gives all children more personal attention, better care, and more personalized learning.

  • Japanese-style Early Childhood Education Program available.

    We have an all-Japanese staff including our Early Childhood Educator who has multiple years of experience in Japan providing programs including reading Japanese books, singing songs, hand play, arts and crafts, etc. Children will learn proper Japanese and Japanese culture in a variety of fun methods.

    Knowledge of Japanese is not required.
