Early Childhood Education

The cultural gap between early childhood education in Japan and in other countries is mountainous. So this time we thoroughly dig into the differences between early childhood education in Japan and in other countries. We get into a heated discussion with foreigners about the differences between Japanese and overseas kindergartens. What’s the sales strategy of a magazine for children that is unique to Japan? We close in on the differences between Japan and the world regarding little children. Will we be able to find cools of early childhood education in Japan?
