Extended Day Program

The International School of the Sacred Heart warmly welcomes you to the Extended Day Program (EDP), offered to Kindergarten and Junior School students.

The EDP will be available from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. on regular school days. Families may register for one, two or three hours.

The hourly fee for the 2021-2022 school year is 1,800 yen (for families who pre-paid at the end of last year, we will keep it as it is, but when you pre-pay again, you will use this amount). Prepaid hours from last year may be carried over to this year. Children must be picked up on time with a 10-minute grace period. If a child is picked up 11 minutes or more after the registered child care finishes (i.e. at 4:11 p.m. or later, 5:11 p.m. or later, or 6:11 p.m. or later) an additional hour will be charged.

Children will enjoy the following tentative schedule this year in the EDP:

  • 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. snack time, free play (possible story time and singing)
  • 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. outside playtime in the Kindergarten playground (or in the Library, Open Area or Duchesne Room in case of rain or cold weather)
  • 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. arts & crafts and/or homework time

EDP emails will only be answered between 2:00 - 6:30 p.m. If you have an urgent request and/or need an immediate response, please email Ms. Inji in the K/JS Office at inji.mizugaki@issh.ac.jp or Ms. Ellen Yaegashi at kjs.principal@issh.ac.jp.
