Bright Start


Sunshine Kids Academy’s Bright Start Sponsorship Program reduces financial barriers for families with children aged 1 to 6. The program covers 25% to 45% of tuition fees for Preschool & Kindergarten Programs from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM at all campuses, excluding afterschool activities. Discount levels are confidentially assessed annually based on household income.

Applicants must be resident visa holders or Japanese citizens, with children between 1 and 6 years old (no infants). Up to two siblings can be sponsored concurrently, and families must commit to one full academic year. Household income must not exceed ¥10,000,000 for a single child or ¥12,000,000 for multiple children, with adjusted thresholds for additional siblings. Families receiving other educational support or local childcare subsidies are not eligible.

Approved families must sign a Memorandum of Agreement and submit income proof and tax documents. An invoice for the upcoming term is issued and must be paid within three business days to secure the sponsorship. Annual reapplication in April is required to maintain support.

Application Schedule

Applications open mid-April and close at the end of April, with dates announced annually. Applications can be submitted by mail or in person. They are processed on a first-come, first-served basis, prioritizing those with financial needs. Results are emailed by the end of May.
