About Municipal Kindergartens


There are presently 23 municipal kindergartens (市立幼稚園 / Shiritsu Yōchien), attended by around 2,150 children, in Nagoya City. Children go to their kindergarten accompanied by their parent or guardian, with their own lunch.

Hours: As a rule, children attend from 8:45 to 14:00. Childcare is available between 14:00 and 17:00 at each kindergarten.

Enrolment Procedure: In September every year, application guidelines are announced and enrolment forms are distributed. Applications are accepted in mid-October, and enrolment is determined in late October. This enrolment procedure takes place at each kindergarten. If vacancies are still available, enrolment applications are accepted at any time.

Inquiries: Please contact your preferred kindergarten or the Teaching Personnel Division (教職員課) of the Nagoya City Board of Education (Phone: 052-972-3243) directly for more information.
