~The truly necessary experience.~
Working in the field, raising animals like goats and chicken, wiping the floor, going to public bath together.
We pursue the truly necessary experiences, which develops the human power.

We provide the children opportunities for experiences, not 10 but 100, guiding them to think, choose, and take actions by themselves.

policy: 1Four axis of Doronko Nurture

1Our NurtureAbout mixed-age nurture and inclusive nurture

Mixed-age nurture and inclusive nurture.
Children of different ages, regardless of whether or not they have a disability, experience everything, things they want to try and things difficult to handle.

Regardless of age or disability, children live together, rely on each other, conflict with each other, and teach each other.
Doronko nurtures the foundation of the strength to live through the future.

4Nurture ProgramContents of Doronko Nurture

Introducing all the programs,
Doronko’s daily routine including
preschool education.

We set the environment and let the children develop their own thinking in order to enable children to be aware of the nature, the features of things, life, food, food cycle with their senses, through experiences and labor, and to choose the activities they want to do.
…This is Doronko way of childrearing.

See the details.

It is very important to cultivate “non-cognitive ability” during the period of personality formation and character formation.

Usually, cognitive skill training is a main part of the preschool education, but we focus on the non-cognitive ability training prior to the preschool education.

Cognitive abilityThe ability measurable by IQ
Non-cognitive ability Unmeasurable abilities

Doronko Nurture

Doronko LifeLife in Doronko.

While the sun is there, outdoor activities as much as possible. Acquire strength to live through daily life, playing and labor.

Children, through 100 experiences not 10, learn to choose, think, act by themselves.
They walk long distance which helps them acquire physical strength and discovery capability.
They work in the fields, weed, catch bugs in the soil.
They clean up the dung of animals and clean the hut.
We cherish the time while the sun is there, everyday from 9:00 to 12:00 and from 15:00 till the sunset.
