To cultivate and develop the human resource sector the government established the National Centre for Human Resource Development (NCHRD), under the Ministry of Education, in 1998. “Millions of Japanese and Chinese students have left their home countries to pursue higher education abroad. Today, Japan and China are developing thanks to the combined strengths of their local graduates and those educated in the foreign countries,” The “Enrollment Week” campaign is now launched at the beginning of every academic year in an effort to entice as many students as possible into the school system.

At Pre school,children can develop their mental, physical, emotional, and social skills in their teams. "learning should not just be about languages, mathematics and science.Parents should also encourage their children to take part in music, sports or arts so they are encouraged to learn many different things and develop an active mind,” Ms Yumi Hasegawa, managing director of Do-Re-Mi Family Club , said.
