Supply List


Q:If I take more than one session will my child still enjoy it?
A:Each session includes craft making, singing songs, story books, fun worksheets and game activities based on the theme. You can take more than one session and enjoy different crafts, stories, songs and fun activities related to the weekly theme.
Q:How are the classes divided?
A:Classes are based on the child's date of birth with 12 to 18 students per class.
Q:Can my child be in the same class as my child’s friends?
A:As a general policy, we do not accept requests regarding class assignments. We believe it is important for students to adapt to their new surroundings and cultivate new friendships. Requests based on special circumstances may be considered but cannot be guaranteed. Any such requests must be noted by the respective parents in the remarks section of the application. Please be advised that in cases where students are in different grade levels, they will be placed in the class corresponding to the lower grade.
Q:Can you pick my child(ren) up near my house?
A:The bus route will be decided in consideration to the children's residence to participate in each session, so it may not be possible to meet your request. Most often you will meet at the nearest station or large street. Please understand this beforehand. In addition, we will contact you on Thursday or Friday of the week before the start of the session regarding the boarding place and time of the bus.
Q:My child(ren) can't speak English at all, is that OK?
A:Our summer program is created for many students of different levels to participate, so even if you do not have summer school experience, it is okay.
Q:Can I order a school lunch?
A:For lunch at our school, we ask a nearby lunchbox maker. It consists of usual food in a Japanese lunchbox, like rice and side dishes. There is no menu to choose from for the school lunch. Lunch will be ordered weekly and cannot be canceled. In principle, we do not accept school lunch orders for child(ren) with food allergies.
Q:What happens in the event of a disaster?
A:In the event of a disaster, our school is instructed by the fire department to wait at the school if there is no problem with the building. Depending on the disaster situation, we may have to evacuate to an evacuation site (Shonan Kokusai Muranishi Park) and be picked up. However, please be aware that the evacuation area may change depending on the situation at the time, with the student's safety taken first. In the event of a disaster, school bus operations will be canceled. In that case, we will do our best to protect the students until the parents come to pick them up. In the event of a disaster, information will be provided on Twitter (Twitter ID: hayamainter). Please check at each home.
Q:What happens if someone gets injured?
A:At our school, the staff takes great care to prevent any injuries or accidents, but in the unlikely event of an accident, we will take the following measures. ・ For minor injuries such as abrasions, we will provide first aid for disinfection, but in the case of injuries that can not be judged at the school, we will call parents to have the child picked up. ・ If an emergency is required, we will take the patient in an ambulance or school staff will transport the child to a hospital and have the guardian come to the hospital immediately. In the event of an accident or injury, we will contact the parents by telephone (injuries that require immediate attention), accident reports (large visible injuries, bruises, injuries near vital points), and bus reports (at school). ・ For small injuries and accidents that occur: small abrasions and cuts often occur in daily life, and parents may not be contacted due to the size of the injury or accident and the condition of the student. If your child is injured without contact, please contact the school. Please note that dealing with all bruises and scratches is very difficult.
Requests for our parents and guardians:
1. Have your child(ren) wash their hands and gargle thoroughly upon returning home from school 2. If your child(ren) has a fever (over 99.5), or any other cold or symptoms, they may not come to school. Please keep them at home until they are in good health. 3. If your child(ren) will be absent from school, please notify our office of their absence with details by email.
