The Childcare ICT Promotion Association (Headquarters: Seiyo City, Ehime Prefecture, Representative Director: Touma Miyoshi, hereinafter referred to as the Association), which is engaged in seminars and information dissemination to connect ICT to better childcare, is positive about the use of ICT in childcare. As part of efforts to support staff and facilities that are working on this, we will establish and implement the “Childcare ICT Test” with the aim of visualizing capabilities related to ICT in childcare.
On February 18, 2023, a childcare ICT test “beginner” will be held (free). By having them acquire the qualification, we aim to support the staff who are promoting ICT in the childcare facility and to develop human resources.

Background of the establishment of the “Childcare ICT Test”

As one of the means to solve these problems, the use of ICT in childcare is progressing these days. on the other hand ■ I became a person in charge of the childcare system, but I don’t know what to do
I want to explain to my colleagues how the introduction of ICT to childcare will improve things.
■ I want to systematically acquire knowledge of ICT
There are many employees who feel that ICT is a problem. By conducting the childcare ICT test, we aim to deepen our knowledge of ICT and develop human resources who can actively use it.
Purpose of the “Childcare ICT Test”

If many staff take the exam in the park, knowledge of ICT will be shared, and if a problem occurs, it will become a self-propelled facility that can guide the solution by themselves.

It is also intended to visualize abilities through certification and to support staff who are promoting the use of ICT.

About ICT in childcare
The childcare industry still relies heavily on handwriting and telephone calls for planning and recording childcare, daily contact with parents, and managing children’s arrival and departure from kindergarten. The use of ICT in childcare, which aims to digitize these using systems and apps and improve work efficiency, is attracting attention.
Communication with children, guardians, and staff that you want to cherish is as it is.
We aim to utilize ICT to realize the childcare that we want to do. About the Childcare ICT Promotion Association

From Representative Director Toma Miyoshi
While working as a nursery teacher at a nursery school in Seiyo City, Ehime Prefecture, I have been involved in the introduction and use of ICT, but the road to ICT adoption is not smooth. I have been keenly aware of this myself, having been involved in the introduction of ICT in many kindergartens for many years while working as a nursery teacher.
Therefore, we established the Childcare ICT Promotion Association to support teachers who are trying to use ICT.
By using ICT, we can reduce the work burden of everyone involved in childcare, build an environment that allows them to focus on childcare, and aim to secure and improve the quality of childcare. We will continue to do our best to act as a bridge between childcare workers and ICT systems. Thank you for your support.
