Hiyoko Group (class for pre-kindergarten children)

Hiyoko Group

The Hiyoko Group provides pre-kindergarten children (2-year-old and 3-year-old children who are eligible to enter our kindergarten) and their parents with opportunities to experience activities at our kindergarten.
We provide sessions for about 5 months until October, with the goal of offering a fun, relaxing environment in which children and their parents can participate on a casual basis.
