EtymologyEdit

Compound of 幼稚 (yōchi, infantile) +‎ (en, garden).[1][2][3] The term is apparently a calque of German Kindergarten (children's garden), as Japanese yōchien were started in 1876 based on the German model initiated by Friedrich Fröbel in 1837 and on the term Kindergarten that he coined in 1840.[2][3]
