Let all that you do be done in love

(1 Corinthians 16:14)


Dear parents and guardians

Thank you very much for choosing Apple Youchien from among the many early childhood education institutions for your child.

Apple Youchien is every child’s ‘home away from home’ where they can spend their time surrounded in happiness. Established in 2005, we dreamed of creating a place where children can cultivate a rich childhood.


Through their time here, we hope that every child will be able to feel the changing seasons and nature all around them and will be able to fully express themselves as an individual.


We look forward to working together with you as the parents and guardians of these wonderful children given to by God so that we may carefully guide them through this important time of their lives.


                          Apple Youchien Director: Yukiko Ono
