Day Care is for kids from 6 months through 5 years of age. The school year runs from 1 April and ends 31 March. The children are grouped into cohorts according to birthdate. That is, little Taro born 31 March and Hanako born 1 April will be in different cohorts. Most Day Cares will have six cohorts; 6 months, 1 year old, 2 year old, 3 year old, 4 year old, 5 year old. https://www.quora.com/How-does-early-childhood-education-in-Japan-India-China-differ-from-the-standard-American-European-preschool
