Opening “Union Forest Nanyo NURSERY SCHOOL” an on-site NURSERY SCHOOL open to the community so workers can work full of life

UNION TOOL CO. established “Union Forest Nanyo NURSERY SCHOOL,” an on-site NURSERY SCHOOL open to the community on the premises of Union Tool Nagaoka Factory (Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture) and started operations from April 3, 2017.

UNION TOOL CO. is working to create an environment where its workers can continue to work full of life through supporting a childcare environment for working fathers and mothers. Establishing an on-site NURSERY SCHOOL open to the community is part of our support of childcare and contribution to the community.

Purpose of the establishment

From early on, UNION TOOL CO. has been actively working on supporting childcare for employees including part-time employees, such as extending childcare leave (Up to a year and six months) and shortening working hours for childcare (Until the end of the third grade in elementary school). As a company that has developed in Nagaoka City, we established an on-site NURSERY SCHOOL open to the community from the desire to contribute to regional revitalization and stop the declining birthrate by “supporting a childcare environment for working married couples,” not to mention childcare support for our employees.

Origin of the name and logo


Based on our desire to carry out child care in a rich natural environment, many different kinds of trees are planted around the facility. There is an artificial hill in the yard.
It is named “Union Forest Nanyo NURSERY SCHOOL” based on the image of “a NURSERY SCHOOL in the forest in Nanyo region.


We utilized the hiragana character “yu,” which is the capital letter of “Union Forest.”
It has a circular shape, so it will be compatible with the logo of UNION TOOL CO., in addition to the fact that it looks like a child wearing a hat.
