Nursery School: Enrolling and Leaving

Enrolling in Nursery School

Nursery schools look after children who are not yet enrolled in school, whose guardian(s) are unable to care for them at home due to work or other reasons. They support growing children from the dual angles of nursing and education.
As a general rule, nursery schools look after children for 8 hours a day. However, nursery schools can also provide longer hours (from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.) and extended day care (after 6:00 p.m.)
Each nursery school continues registration throughout the year. Please register and apply through the nursery school of your choice. In the event that your desired nursery school is already full to capacity, adjustments may be made. Those who wish to apply to a nursery school outside of Tsubata’s jurisdiction should register through the Health and Child Care Division (kenkou kodomo ka / 健康(けんこう)こども課).
Nursery school enrollment for April begins in the fall. Please check the town newsletter (kouhou tsubata / 広報(こうほう)つばた) in October for more information.

How to Apply

(1) Have an application form issued at the nursery school in which you wish you enroll your child.
      (If you live in Tsubata, or are planning on moving to Tsubata, please inform the nursery school at this time.)
(2) Fill in all the necessary fields on the application and return the form to the nursery school.
(3) Please also fill out a Tsubata Town Account Transfer Request Form (tsubata kouza furikae irai sho / 津幡町(つばたまち)口座(こうざ)振替(ふりかえ)依頼書(いらいしょ)).
      Nursery school fees must be paid by bank transfer. Please fill out the form and turn it in to the nursery school.

Criteria for Nursery School Enrollment

   For children to be enrolled in nursery school, their parents or guardians must meet one of the following seven criteria.
   Parents or guardians who are actively searching for work may also apply. (You will later be required to submit proof of employment. When your place of employment has been determined, you must inform the nursery school.)

〈Criteria for Nursery School Enrollment〉  
(1) If parents or guardians work outside the home, or a plan to work outside the home, and are therefore unable to look after the child.
(2) If parents or guardians work from home (other than housework), and are therefore unable to look after the child.
(3) If an absence due to death, divorce, or disappearance prevents the parents or guardians from looking after the child.
(4) If pregnancy, illness, or mental disability prevent the parents or guardians from looking after the child.
(5) If a member of the child’s household has suffered from long-term illness or mental disability,
       and if caring for that individual prevents the parents or guardians from looking after the child.
(6) If parents or guardians are unable to look after the child during recovery from a fire, flood or wind damage, earthquake, or other disaster.
(7) For other special reasons, with the mayor’s approval. 

Leaving Nursery School

 In the case that you wish to withdraw your child from nursery school, you must submit a notice of withdrawal (taien todoke / 退園届(たいえんとどけ)). Please fill out the necessary paperwork at the nursery school at which your child is registered.
  

Nursery School Fees

About Calculation of Nursery School Fees

  •  After acceptance to nursery school, please submit copies of your tax forms 【Certificate of Income Tax (gensen choushuu hyou / 源泉(げんせん)徴収票(ちょうしゅうひょう)), and Final Income Tax Return (kakutei shinkoku sho / 確定(かくてい)申告書(しんこくしょ))】
    ・ Nursery school fees will be calculated based on both parents’ income tax from the previous year.
    ・ If the mother and father were not subject to income tax in the previous year, calculations will be based on the previous year’s Municipal Inhabitant’s Tax (shi chou son minzei / 市町(しちょう)村民(そんみん)税(ぜい)).
    In this case, you will need to present your Certificate of Taxation (kazei shoumei sho / 課税(かぜい)証明書(しょうめいしょ)).
    Individuals who resided in Tsubata on or before January 1, 2014, can apply for this certificate at the Tax Office in Tsubata Town Hall. Those who moved to Tsubata on or after January 2, 2014, must consult with the municipal tax representative where they lived prior to moving. (Please give the original certificate to the nursery school.)
       * Depending on the situation of the household, this calculation may also include income tax information for the grandparents of the child.
       * Please be aware that tax deduction credits, special dividends for homeowner loans, and foreign income tax credit will not be included in the calculation. Please also be aware that changes may occur due to tax reform.
  •  Nursery school charges for April through June are based on temporary calculations.
    Calculations for April through June will be based on income tax information from two years prior. After June, the amount due for nursery school will change based on new calculations. (If the child’s parents did not pay income tax and submit Municipal Inhabitant’s Tax information instead, the calculations will be made based on tax data from the previous year.)
  •  Municipal Inhabitant’s Tax will be decided in June of every year. Following this, nursery school fees from July through March will be recalculated based on tax information from the previous year.
     After the monthly fee has been recalculated, July payments will be deducted from or added to, to make up the difference for April through June. (If this is inconvenient for you, please discuss it with the nursery school.)
