◼️ Background and challenges
In recent years, as the birthrate declines and the population ages, women are playing an active role as a valuable labor force. The number of women who continue to work while raising children after giving birth is increasing, and nursery schools have become indispensable to society. On the other hand, from the perspective of hiring nursery teachers, the active job openings-to-applicants ratio in April 2022 was 1.98 times (* 1), which is still at a high level, but decreased by 0.06 points from the same month of the previous year, indicating that the “fluidity” of nursery teachers is somewhat low. A downward trend can be seen. “Recruitment of nursery teachers” is one of the key words for the industry problem of shortage of nursery teachers, but it is also essential to consider how to “fix” the current nursery teachers. In addition, since “retention” and “training” are closely related, human resources issues include three elements: “recruitment, retention, and training.”
In this online seminar, we invited Mr. Horiuchi of Funai Research Institute Co., Ltd. He will talk about the process of “growth”, how to create a division of duties from the recruitment scene, and the future image of a kindergarten that can “fix” and “develop”.
Professional advice to facilities that want to strengthen nursery development, such as “I want to improve the flow of nursery teacher recruitment that does not stop”, “I want to develop members who will lead the next generation”, and “I want to be a nursery school of choice in an era when the number of children using it stops
increasing”. I will.
