    Hi
    Which place in Japan are you moving to? There are so many day care centers in Japan. But the staff there will not know our languages. Thats the only constraint in Japan. I'm not sure about evening day care.

    Day care in Japan are very professional. They will have trained nurses to take care of the children. But, they work strictly on time basis. They charge around 40,000-80,000 yen for 9-6pm (5 days) and 500-1,000 Yen for extra hour.

    Food will be provided by them. You can find staff with minimal english.

    Now a days, Indians also started with smaller groups for around 5-10 kids in Kawasaki, Yokohoma, Hikarigaoka in tokyo in n around places. You can check the nearest place for you.

    Many internation companies like, Sony, Texas provide inhouse day cares.

    Thanks Vemala for the reply....
    From where can we find information about the daycare run by Indians? Is it available in some site?
    Unfortunately our company is not having inhouse daycare.

    If you are moving to tokyo, Kawasaki/Yokohoma will be near by to you . Please check out/ request for info in KAWASAKI INDIAN WOMEN yahoo groups. I have lost in touch with them since we moved out from there years back.

    You can even check out some info in ISCON temple /Sathya sai organization (Yokohoma).

    If you are there by 4th APR, you can go to JST Ugadhi function(google u will get details) . You can find lot of information.

    Thanks
