More Japanese Children Gets Waitlisted 3 Years Now

Japan’s number of waitlisted children for day care enrollment has been increasing for three years in a row now. This year, the number grew by 2,528 from 26,081 recorded last April 2016 according to the Health, Labor and Welfare Ministry. This is due to several factors. One of which is more women joining the workforce. Another is the government’s change of definition of waitlisted children. The scope now includes children cared for by working parents who had to extend child care leave since they were not able to enroll them in an authorized public day care center.   [caption id="attachment_479" align="aligncenter" width="575"] Photo credit to:[/caption]  ...
