[What is documentation]
“Documentation” captures the moment when children are enthusiastic about their activities and records them with photographs and comments. In recent years, “documentation” has attracted attention as an effective method for realizing “children’s childcare”.
By using the documentation, childcare, parents and children can create dialogues and expand the world of children to enrich their learning. [Image 2

Kodmon’s “Childcare Documentation Service” is a mechanism that allows the introduction of documentation without increasing the workload of the childcare worker.
By simply filling in one “record with photos”, you can create “diaries”, “posts”, “contact books”, and “weekly plans” all at once. It is possible to consolidate things into one process.
Eliminates the burden of transferring the same content to multiple documents. Using the childcare documentation service, you can show the child’s appearance and interest in childcare activities with photos, and record the experiences and learnings of the children gained through the activities. It is also expected to have the effect of creating a self-introduction (self-assessment) of the childcare person, a dialogue between the childcare workers, and a dialogue between the childcare worker and the guardian, with the “record of” as the core. Furthermore, it is designed so that the cycle of “record ⇒ retrospect ⇒ forecast ⇒ plan” can be repeated while filling in the “record with photo”, so the curriculum management of childcare can be realized. [Thoughts on childcare documentation service development]
Documentation that is effective as a method for realizing
“child-centered childcare”. However, we often hear that it is difficult to get started due to concerns about the increase in the workload of childcare workers and the lack of effective creation and utilization.
This childcare documentation service is an ICT service designed in response to such feedback from the field, by asking how to make effective use of documentation by Prof. Ikuta and Iwata. By using ICT, you can introduce documentation in a way that reduces the workload without increasing the workload. In addition, effective creation and utilization methods can be covered by the mechanism. While making the most of the benefits of ICT, we have been studying how to use the documentation effectively without any burden.
We will continue to study and improve the service so that it will be easier to use and more effective for childcare providers. We hope that as many childcare workers as possible will use this service and that child-centered childcare using “documentation” will advance throughout Japan. (Benesse Corporation)
