We make lunch at each school. The calories of our school lunches are calculated by a nutritionist. We provide a letter at the beginning of each month which lists the lunch menus. Children see the pre-cooked ingredients, know how they are cooked, and hear the sounds and the smell of cooking, which prepares them to enjoy the meal. The children and those cooking are able to talk about the wholesome food being made. By having meals with friends the children will get to like many foods naturally, even those which they do not eat very often or they do not really like at home. Meals are also good times to learn table manners and how to eat with chopsticks, spoons and forks.
If your child is just starting to eat baby food once a day, please continue to feed your child that meal at home. We provide school lunch for children who can eat baby food twice a day or more (from about 8 months old). We adjust the softness and the size of the food pieces depending on the child. If we give a child baby food too early, they are not able to the chew it correctly and will just swallow it. We try to start giving food slowly so that child will naturally become accustomed to it.
Children get homemade snacks at least 3 times a week, and we have a wide range of snack items including bread, baked potatoes, pancakes, and dumplings. For the days children have a big lunch, they have something light for snack later, and for the days they have a small lunch they have something more filling such as sandwiches or noodles. We also choose snacks so that the complete menu is well balanced in terms of nutrition, not just for the day but for the month. Children will have milk and other drinks with their snacks. The drinks have also been carefully selected to nutritionally balance their meals.
The children who have allergies need to bring their own lunch.
Each school has insurance coverage. Insurance cover injuries to children inside the preschool as well as injuries while children are out on group walks.

Eat a healthy breakfast everyday.
Decide how to spend your free time (days off, weekends, and major holidays) by taking your child's physical condition into consideration.
Taking a fever reducer will not help recover from an illness. Also, be aware that fever reducers are strong medicines and drastic measures, therefore these should not be taken indiscriminately.
Except for heat rash, rashes can be very contagious. Therefore, when we suggest you to see a doctor; please go immediately.
We will call you when your child has a fever. Please pick up your child as soon as possible. When your child seems sick, we might ask you to pick up your child even if the child does not have a fever. If you are going to a medical institution that is different from the one registered with our school, please let us know. Please understand that if the child seems sick when you drop your child off in the morning, we will not take the child to the hospital.
If you want us to give medicine to your child, please remember to fill in the medication instruction form, hand it to our nursery staff directly, and tell the staff details such as when and how to give the medicine. Please separate the medicine into the required doses (also applies to any liquid medicines).
Get physical examinations that are organized by the local city or ward. These examinations will help you to determine whether your child has normal physical and mental growth. It is also a good opportunity to know what kind of help your child may need at home and school. Additionally, these examinations can aid in the early detection and possibly cure any health problems. After these examinations, we will request you to bring in a copy of your mother-child health handbook.
In accordance with Article 12 of the School Health Law, please avoid coming to school if you are sick. A child should stay at home if he/she has a contagious sickness. This will allow the child to recuperate and to prevent outbreaks in schools. When you return from being absent, please bring a note from your doctor or a preschool permission form.
