This petition was started in hopes of keeping Kuwae alive.

Kuwae Preschool is a non-profit organization located on U.S. military base (Camp Lester) on Okinawa, Japan. It has enriched the lives of countless military families and has fostered community relations with local schools through their unique culture program. Kuwae Preschool recently "closed its doors" due to a decision that was made by the current director and business manager. It was only voted on by the executive board consisting of three members. There was no meeting open to the general members and no vote sent out to all of the members (which includes every parent with a child attending Kuwae Preschool) as directed by the by-laws. This school has benefitted thousands of students. It’s given them a developmentally appropriate place to learn and grow, in a way that a child development center simply cannot. Thousands more should have the opportunity to experience this interactive, culturally diverse, and NAEYC accredited school. Please sign this petition to help keep Kuwae open for future generations. Almost sixty years of excellence and community relations should not end due to a building issue.


クワエプリスクールの閉園は、園長・ビジネスマネージャー及び3名のボード(学校役員)による会議で決められたとのことです。この決定手続きは、クワエプリスクール運営規程に違反したものです、規程では閉園等の重要な問題は全ての園児の保護者の参加が認められた会議での多数決を得なければならないこととされています。 しかし今回の決定は保護者への何の説明もなく、また会議への呼びかけもないまま、いきなり閉園が発表されたのです。


また園児の保護者もクワエプリスクールの活動に参加することで地域への理解を深めています。さらに、クワエプリスクールは米国の幼児教育診査機関NAEYC(全米乳幼児教育協会)の厳しい基準をパスし、適切な教育水準を維持していると認定されています。 クワエプリスクールはこれまで約60年の歴史を有し、多くの卒園者を出し児童教育の向上と地域文化交流の懸け橋としての役割を果たしてきました。
