Nihonmachi Little Friends (NLF) is a private, nonprofit childcare organization with a mission to provide affordable Japanese/English bilingual, education and care in a multicultural context for preschoolers through elementary school-aged children. NLF was founded in 1975 by parents and community-minded citizens who were committed to develop a culturally sensitive childcare program for young children in San Francisco's Japanese community. NLF programs serve over 200 children annually from diverse ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds from throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area. NLF provides full subsidized care for very low-income families, and a sliding private fee schedule that makes early care and education more affordable to low-to-moderate income households.
