In December 2023, the “Children’s Future Strategy” (*) presented a proposal to improve the placement standards for childcare workers, and the cabinet decided to make improvements starting in 2024. Therefore, we conducted a survey to find out what childcare facilities think about the government’s review of childcare worker placement standards. When we asked childcare facilities what they thought about the review of childcare worker placement standards, 88.57% of them said they “agree” (54.11%) and “generally agree” (34.46%), with the majority being in favor. I understand that.
When asked about when the number of childcare workers for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old children is scheduled to change from April 2024, the answer was, “We have already met the new standards for the number of childcare workers.” The most common response was “There is no plan to change the number of staff members” (70.85%), followed by “There is no plan to change the number of staff members” (19.16%), and “We plan to change to the new standard number of staff members from April 2024” (8.70%). While many childcare facilities have already met the new standards, it was found that approximately 20% of childcare facilities have no plans to change the number of children assigned to them under the new standards.
Furthermore, when asked about their opinions on reviewing the placement standards for nursery teachers, the following responses were answered: “I support the review of placement standards, but considering the actual situation, I think there are many kindergartens that feel that even the proposed improvements are not enough.” Many people expressed the opinion that the content of this review was insufficient, such as, “The current placement standards will make it difficult for children to achieve what they want to do, and I think it will lead to inappropriate childcare.”
Another said, “This is necessary, but given the current shortage of childcare workers, I think the challenge is how to secure childcare workers and maintain the quality of childcare.” “I would like to see more staffing and wages. ”, there were many references to the shortage of childcare workers, indicating that further improvements are needed.
