The social welfare corporation Shuzenkai originates from a foundation Shuzenkai, which was founded by ITO Jirozaemon Suketami, the first president of Matsuzakaya, in 1933 in order to contribute to society in the rest of his life.
The mission statement of Shuzenkai is “Abjure all evil and practice all good,” which is the family code of the Ito. It is from the teaching of the Buddhist scriptures saying “Refrain from all evil and practice all good. To this end, purify your mind and be selfless.” Based on this mission statement, we operate an infant home, a nursery school and a night nursery school.
Social Welfare Service
Shuzenkai has a history of more than 80 years at Shinsakae 3-chome, Naka-ku, Nagoya. The users of Shuzenkai Nursery School include some three generations of families. It is thanks to the support many people have given to our activities that we could draw close to children in the region and move forward together with them until today. We sincerely appreciate all of them.
Early childhood from zero to five years of age is an important period to build a foundation of health and develop sensitivity. We are taking care of children with single-hearted devotion using long experience and rich knowledge so that children can grow up strong both physically and mentally.
Some foreign children use our facilities due to the central location of Nagoya, and, in addition, there are welfare facilities for the aged nearby. Thus communication with various people gives children valuable experience, which helps broaden their horizons.
In this era of women becoming more active, child welfare needs are changing. While the birth rate is declining, the number of children seems to increase in urban central areas. With an eye on the movement of the age, Shuzenkai will remain committed to providing finely tuned good welfare services and various information on child rearing, childcare and education in a manner that caters to the needs of the region.
Your continued support would be greatly appreciated.
The company name of the Shuzenkai social welfare corporation originates in the Buddhist scriptures used as the family precept of the company founder, ITO Jirozaemon Suketami, the first president of Matsuzakaya, which reads "諸悪莫作衆善奉行" (Shoaku Makusa Shuzen Bugyo).
