At a kindergarten in Oyama City, Tochigi Prefecture, which was damaged by Typhoon No. 19 and used it, childcare is carried out using a classroom of a university run by the same corporation.

“Shirakaba University Hakuo Kindergarten” in Daigoji, Oyama City, Tochigi Prefecture, was affected by a typhoon No. 19 and suffered a power outage on the floor, making the facility unusable.

At the kindergarten, there are many families where parents go to work, so we borrow a classroom from a university run by the same corporation in the city and carry out childcare from 8 am to 6 pm.

On the 21st, 13 kindergarten children spent playing with toys and drawing pictures with college students who came to teach and help.

Kindergarten is scheduled to resume operation on the second floor of a building that was not exposed to water from the 24th of this month.

A mother in her thirties said, “It is inconvenient because it is different from the usual place, but I am thankful for taking care of my child because I work.”

Dr. Tada said, “This flood caused a lot of water that flowed in compared to the heavy rains in Kanto and Tohoku four years ago.
