Many people feel that hay fever is more common among adults.
However, research shows that the incidence in children is not that different from that in adults. In this article we will talk about “hay fever in children”. Since it is difficult for children to deal with hay fever on their own, they will need their parents support.
It is important for parents to take proper measures against hay fever in children. During the hay fever season, parents who want their child to get exercise and have lots of play opportunities but are worried about the pollen outside, should consider enrolling in a preschool or early childhood classes. In these programs, children will have the opportunity to learn new things and play with friends in an indoor environment.
The importance of art has been recognized in early childhood education, including the popularity of the Reggio Emilio learning approach which focuses on art exploration. In this article we will go over the effects of art education on young children and what types of art education are available.
Many people feel that [art education] is a limited category but the term includes a large variety of different forms of learning. Cutting paper, doing origami and playing music are all considered types of art. Most English preschools include art education in their curriculum. Doing art projects can be messy and are often difficult to do at home. Attending an English preschool will give your child the opportunity to learn and explore English through fun art projects.
Based on the strong request from the Tokyo Government for residents to stay home this weekend, we have decided to close all of our sites in the Tokyo area this weekend.

When we were children, we spent a lot of time outside playing tag, hide and seek and even soccer and baseball. However, nowadays, children are spending less time outside for a variety of reasons. Let’s look at why this is happening and what children can gain from outside play.
In recent years, opportunities for outside play have decreased for various reasons. However, running around with friends and playing sports in the park is important for children. Parents should support their children and create opportunities for outside play as much as possible. Parents who are worried that their children are not getting enough exercise because they cannot play outside should send their children to preschools and after schools that incorporate sports and dance into the curriculum. Playing outside and doing P.E. activities will help your child’s mind and body grow while they make new friends.
Most parents have experienced the situation where they bought their child a new toy but he/she never plays with it. Although the makes parents feel that their purchase was a waste, let’s look at the real reason why children don’t play with certain toys. In this article, we will introduce some reasons why children don’t play with toys they are given.
If you find that your child is not interested in playing with toys at home, it may be a good idea to take him/her to classes where he/she can use toys with other children. Your child will discover toys that he/she has not seen before and experience how much fun it is to play with his/her peers. Once they learn how to play with toys, parents can enjoy the fun with them at home.
In Germany, most parents and educators believe that children learn how to live through play. As a result, children participate in many play activities. Here will introduce 4 popular games played in Germany. Some of them can be enjoyed in Japan as well.
German children, like Japanese children, learn social rules and about human relationships through play at a very young age. Allowing children to attend early child classes from a young age, will give them the opportunity to make new friends, learn social rules and foster cooperation and compassion for others. Let’s learn from the German culture and expose our children to learning through play.
