Once Again: gParents and the Daycare Center Raising Children Togetherh
From gKazenoko Letterh No.378 - July 2009

@I mentioned in the May issue of 'Kazenoko Letter' that, for a long time, we (including Kazenoko Baby Home) have provided childcare under the goal gParents and the Daycare Center Raising Children Togetherh.This is about the relationship between guardians and our center. Ifll talk about it in more detail.

@Many daycare centers and kindergartens clearly set a boundary between guardians and centers. Guardians are not allowed to enter the center and touch anything inside. Guardians usually see children off and pick them up at the entrance or in the garden in the morning and evening, and they donft often enter the classroom. This is influenced by the school system.

@Therefore, guardians donft know much about how their child spends the day and can only guess from what they hear from the teacher in charge. I hear that class discussions with teachers in charge is often held only once or twice a year.

@With regards to this, we open our center to guardians early. They can come to the classroom, set their childfs clothes, observe their child playing with others, and have a conversation with the teacher in charge. We believe that not only the nursery staff but also the guardians have a cooperative role in raising the child. We ask for common understanding about child-raising, so we hold gOne day class participationsh and often hold gClass meetings with the teacher in chargeh or gGroup meetingsh.

@However, the deeper the knowledge the guardians have about the center, the more they complain or express various opinions about the nursery stafffs language and behavior. We canft avoid such conflicts when social relations deepen. However, if we have a frank conversation regarding raising the child together, we can understand and trust each other on a deeper level. With "Parents and the Daycare Center Raising Children Together", we set out with this kind of higher purpose within our relationships.
