Useful information for foreign residents with children approaching elementary school entrance.
Since we have gone into the 2nd half of the fiscal year 2021, we are now in the period of preparation for the next year.
The elementary school entrance is a big event for families with small children.
I myself am a mother of an elementary school kid and sometimes find difficult to prepare school entrance and to support my son’s school life when I cannot obtain sufficient information.
I can easily imagine that foreign families may have much more concerns than Japanese families about this matter.
At this time, I would like to recommend a guidebook about Japanese elementary school life published by Bunkyo Multilingual Support Network. The guidebook provides with detailed and clear information written in 3 languages (simple Japanese, English and Chinese).
