President Message

Truly pursue childcare for children
‐Kids Corporation Holdings’ voyage without chart continues‐

After graduating from university, I got a job as the teacher of a university attached kindergarten. Since then, I have been involved in early childhood education for 30 years.
A number of events have occurred, however, I have always kept my belief in mind, that is "To practice true infant education for children" and "To change the country through early childhood education". Even when I was the kindergarten teacher, even when I started a business at the one-room apartment, and even now when the company has grown bigger and runs more than 150 nurseries nationwide, it has not changed.

The number of what we have to do as well as what we want to do has increased for 30years, leading to broadening our business field, such as the peripheral businesses of infant education and training business for childcare providers. We have shifted to holdings company system to embark on new businesses.

There are outstanding methods for infant education in Japan. I intend to spread them all over the world by organizing them. As I had dreamed of expanding to serve the entire country at a 6-tatami one-room apartment, Kids Corporation Holdings in a corner of the Japan is now dreaming about advancing overseas. I have been determined to go forward with the belief that “Dream is what is realized, not what is dreamed.”

I would appreciate it if everyone looked forward to the future of Kids Corporation Holdings, watching it with a warm eye.
