Support NLF! Your Donations and Registrations Makes a Difference!
NLF was founded in 1975 by a group of parents and community activists who were committed to the idea of offering culturally sensitive childcare for young children in San Francisco’s Japanese community. After much research and planning, the organization began with a single preschool serving 15 children. Today, NLF has one combined preschool program site and an elementary school-age program site serving over 150 children each year.
Despite our reduced income from tuition, we remain committed to providing a safe and stimulating environment for our children to learn and grow. With your support, we will be able to maintain the high-quality programs and staff that has defined NLF for the past 47 years.
