  2. Child Care Room

Most people who work while raising children usually use nursery services. However, there may be days when the nursery is closed, or, if the children are attending school and have long holidays. In addition, members may have to come to the office for business even during their child care leave. We provide a designated space for parents to work and watch their children.

The Child Care Room(CCR) is a facility that is located in Research Bldg. No. 2 of the university campus. Researchers and other staff members who bring their children to the office may use the room for their children to play in and for breastfeeding and disposing of excess breast milk. The room is maintained with an air purifier and every effort is made to keep the environment safe for the children to play in the room, from infants to elementary school children. The room is also equipped with toys for different age groups.

We hope this room will serve as a space where parents share information and challenges of raising children while parents and their children share the space and time for interaction.

We do not have a designated room for this purpose in the Inamori Foundation Memorial Building, but the multi-purpose room on the 3rd floor can be used by children.
