Your Family Deserves Assistance With Tuition

Child care is one of your biggest priorities, and you work hard to make sure your child is getting the very best start. There are resources available to help you offset the cost of care, and we’ve made it easy to learn about them.
Your Family Deserves Assistance With Tuition

SEE WHAT OPTION WORKS FOR YOU:

A tax credit is even more valuable to families than a tax deduction! It’s a dollar-for-dollar reduction in the taxes you owe. Some credits are refundable—reducing taxes otherwise owed to zero and paying a refund.  

Foreign Worker Tax Benefits: 

For non-citizens living and working in Japan, child care tax credits may be available on the income tax you pay to your home country. Ask your accountant or your employer for more information. 

Japanese Tax Benefits: 

Everyone who works in Japan, regardless of whether they are citizens, permanent, or non-permanent residents, must pay income tax. While a tax deduction for children under 16 was removed in 2011, you may be eligible for other benefits or deductions based on the size of your household. Ask your accountant to help you identify your benefits. 

As customers of a privately operated, city-registered care centre (Ninkagai Hoikushisetsu), parents can apply to their local government office or welfare centre for reimbursement. Conditions apply, but families could be eligible to receive up to ¥42,000 for children ages 0-2 and ¥37,000 for children ages 3-5. Find out more about reimbursement here.

More and more employers add child care benefits to their employee compensation packages because it’s hard to do your job without reliable child care! 

Talk with your employer or your HR department about whether they offer child care benefits and how to use them. 

If your family joins us for the first time, raves about us to friends and family, or has lived in Japan for more than 5 years, you could receive benefits. Ask us for more details about any of these rewards:

Referral Reward 

Recommend us to a friend, and when they enroll full-time, you could be eligible for a tuition credit of ¥5000 for every new family that joins us. There’s no limit on referrals, and the new family receives a tuition credit, too! 

Loyalty Program

We’d love to reward you for being a loyal Playpourri family! Ask us about how our Loyalty discount program can save you on tuition costs.
