Message from the Director


Kodomo No Ie opened in October 1987 and will be celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2017!
So many memories run through my head, like pictures on an old film reel.

It feels like a dream that this tiny, tiny school that I started, with my simple desire to spend time with children again after moving to the Unites States, has now flourished into a place where countless children have grown up in the past 30 years.
These 30 years would not have been possible without the parents’ support and encouragement, as well as God’s protection.

A committee has been set up to prepare for the 30th anniversary celebration led by a group of parent volunteers.
I would like to reunite with the alumni and their families to bring back many wonderful memories and express my deepest gratitude, while celebrating the anniversary with the current students and their families as well.

Thank you for your support and understanding, as we prepare to create a warm and friendly event that will hopefully touch you all.

Kazuko Umehata,
Director of Kodomo No Ie
