Drop-In Care Registration & Fees
A child must be 2 to 6 years of age to register.
Step 1: COMPLETE ONLINE REGISTRATION
Once you have decided that Hand In Hand is a good fit for your family, register in our Child Care Programs by completing the ONLINE REGISTRATION. A one-time, non-refundable 5,000 yen registration fee is paid at this time. When you complete and submit the online form, you will be redirected to the secure payment environment of the PayPal website. You may pay by credit card or with your PayPal account if you have one.
Step 2: RESERVE SPOT
To ensure availability and proper staffing, families using Drop-In Care must reserve for a spot in advance at least 2 days prior to your visit. Contact us by phone, email or using the inquiry form to provide your preferred drop-in date and hours of care. We will get in touch with you to confirm availability. If we are full, we will let you know what’s available as an alternative schedule that might meet your needs.
Step 3: PREPAID CARD
Please purchase a prepaid card at the front desk on your first visit. The card is an advance payment for 360 minutes (6 hours) of drop-in care. Prepaid cards are valid for one full year and good for use as you need them. There is no limit to how many prepaid cards you can purchase in advance. You can use your prepaid cards all at once, or one visit at a time.
