Greetings from the department head

The period from infancy to childhood is considered to be an important period for cultivating the foundations of character and ability to survive throughout life, and system reform of early childhood education and elementary education is currently progressing rapidly, especially in developed countries.Given this trend, I would like to offer my sincere support to all of you who wish to take up meaningful work in which you are responsible for the lives of children and support their learning.

The Department of Elementary Education looks at society and culture from a global perspective and offers a variety of learning programs from both theoretical and practical perspectives.I am confident that what you learn in this department will help you in your future.
