Nichii Gakkan Moves into Day Care

Nichii Gakkan, a major company in the medical office and nursing-care business, aims to set up about eight licensed day care centers offering extended hours of service by the end of 2006, company officials said. The first facility opened Tuesday in Tokyo's Minato Ward. Open until 10 p.m., it can accommodate up to 40 children. Charges range from ¥50,400 to ¥64,800, depending on the age of the child, for 180 hours of supervision per month. There will also be programs for 220 and 260 hours of service. The centers will sometimes have the children play with senior citizens who use the company's nursing care services, and English lessons will also be available. (Nihon Keizai Shimbun)
