UP Our School Name
DOWN
  "Cosmos" is a cheerful flower. The word also means "world" or "universe" in Greek.
We have named our school "Cosmos," reflecting our wish that our children will fly high from the microcosmos of Nagoya University Cosmos Nursery School to the bigger world, the macrocosmos, with a well-balanced personality nurtured through interactions between the individual (microcosmos) and society (macrocosmos).
UP Objectives and Background
DOWN
  Nagoya University has established on-campus child-care facilities as part of its gender equality project which addresses the benefits for the University staff as well as international exchange activities. It is provided in order to help improve the staff's working conditions by supporting the simultaneous pursuit of work and child rearing. The Expert Committee on Gender Equality Promotion conducted an on-campus questionnaire survey. Based on the needs expressed in response to this survey, the establishment of child-care facilities was approved at a meeting of the Board of Trustees, Deans and Directors Committee, and the Education and Research Council held in January 2005.
 
Nagoya University supports all our faculty and staff!
Cosmos Nursery School encourages holistic development of children while also supports their parents' career and life. The University, child-care specialists, staff and students from around the world create an environment where children and parents can grow and thrive, in a campus setting surrounded by a green landscape.
UP Child-care at Cosmos
DOWN
  Nagoya University provides an environment where its faculty and staff can pursue their careers, at the same time they raise their children without worries. As our child-care philosophy, we aim that children meet a diversity of people and grow up by engaging with nature. We have children coming regularly, temporary, or joining in the middle of the year, and coming with different cultural backgrounds. This unique environment gives children opportunities to get to know and learn from a diversity of people. The nursery is also surrounded by greenery, so that we provide child-care in harmony with nature.
