Korean In-Home Daycare by Inchon Gate
Okay, obviously I don’t have a name for this. Anyway, it’s a Korean in-home daycare only minutes from base.
Parent take: PROS: Daycare was close to post, behind Ichon station in Daewoo Towers. They fed him lunch and snacks, brushed his teeth after each, offered many classes like music, physical work outs, art, administered his medicine if he had a cold, in the states they won’t do that. The teachers always had smiles and my son had no problem running into their arms. Most of all super inexpensive, I can take my son to daycare and not break the bank. I paid half the monthly tuition and the Korean government paid the other half. Not sure how I qualified for it, but I’m told if your 100% Korean it’s free.
CONS: Only that English was bare minimum. There was one teacher there that spoke some English so I could get the basics. They were not good at keeping track of kids clothes, the kids run around bare foot, so his socks were missing all the time. Sometimes his jacket would go home with someone else. Nothing major.
Ages: Newborn-age 4
Cost: 14,500 KRW a day
