Baby Steps

For children aged 12 months to 3 years
9:00am to 12:00pm (minimum 3 days a week)

Baby Steps is our half day daycare program designed to help your child adjust to being away from mom and home for the first time. From 9am to 12pm, we will take care of your baby in a loving, friendly, music filled environment. Your little one will stay with us and learn our morning routine, join us as we enjoy snack time, play time, and park time, then head home again at lunch time!

This program was especially created for parents who are considering enrolling their children in First Step (our all day daycare program) but are worried that all day might be just a little too long for their little ones to stay away from home, especially if it’s their first time. Little by little,taking baby steps, your babies will not only get used to but come to love going to Star Kids and, before you know it, they will be ready to take even bigger steps and join First Step!

First Step

For children aged 1 to 3 years
9:00am to 16:00pm (minimum 3 days a week)

Our First Step daycare is usually a child’s first experience being separated from his or her parents. By making our classes as fun, relaxing and stress free as possible, we aim to make this “first step” easy. Children will learn songs and dances, take part in play based learning activities, go to the park, and be encouraged to explore everything around them, slowly learning and playing together.


For children aged 3 years to 6 years
9:00am to 2:00pm (minimum 2 days a week)

Our Preschool program is packed with fun, play based learning activities but also focuses on literacy, numeracy, and the child’s social and emotional development. Singing, dancing, going to the park are among our daily activities. Children learn to play together and share, steadily improving under the guidance and care of their loving teachers.

All Day For children aged 3 years to 6 years
9:00am to 6:00pm (minimum 2 days a week)

Our all day program was developed to support working parents. Children staying with us all day join our Preschool program in the morning, then enjoy some quiet, teacher supervised play and a rest, before taking part in our After School program. We also provide Early Spot care from 8:30am and Late pickup until 6:30pm for an extra charge. We understand some days can be busy and a parent may have to drop their children off early or pick them up late. Just let us know a day or two in advance and will have everything prepared. Children coming for the afternoon program are asked to bring a small snack and a drink.

Children coming for the morning program are asked to bring a packed lunch and a snack from home. Children have varied tastes and dietary requirements, not to mention food allergies that need to be taken into consideration. Also, in our experience, children love coming to school with lunches made at home. They love talking about and comparing what they have in their lunch boxes!

After School

For children aged 3 years to 6 years
3:30am to 6:00pm (minimum 2 days a week)

This short program is for children attending other Japanese schools/kindergartens in the mornings but would like to join us in the afternoon. Our curriculum is filled with play based learning activities. As the children learn through play, they don’t even know they are learning. For them, it’s just fun!
