    In recent years, the importance of toddler care has been recognized, but the shortage of childcare teachers due to issues such as wage systems and working conditions is a serious problem. The pressing issue behind the quantitative expansion of toddler care is to improve the expertise of childcare teachers who have an understanding of the unique development of toddlers and expertise in this area. In this study, a rubric-type childcare environment evaluation tool to encourage physical activity was developed for 0 to 2-year-old children, whose walking was established, nervous systems were explosively developed through physical activity, and personality was developing rapidly, in order to examine the relationship between the evaluation tool and the amount of physical activity of the toddlers.

    As a result, 26 labels that were extracted as physical activity environments necessary for toddlers to engage in a daycare center were identified as medium goals, from which seven big goals were generated. The seven big goals were further divided into two categories, “child-centered” and “childcare-teacher-centered,” according to the subject of the actions in the big goals. The correlation between these goals and the amount of toddlers’ physical activity was examined, and a correlation was confirmed with eight items.

    In this study, texts in teacher training courses on special needs education and introductory books for teachers at special needs schools were text-mined to grasp the state of explanations of psychology, physiology, and pathology related to intellectual disabilities. The extracted frequent words included keywords in the definition of intellectual disability. By further analysis, we were able to confirm the co-‍occurrence relationship between characteristic words such as intellectual function and adaptive ability. In addition, it is possible to know the similarity of words such as the necessary support and the classification of causes, and it suggested a learning axis for students in the teacher training course.

    In the first report, we analyzed the data of 60 COVID-19 patients of Kyushu Sangyo University students, who were detected until the end of January, 2021. Based on the analysis, we called for avoiding 3 Cs (Crowded places, Closed spaces, and Contact settings), wearing a face mask, hand disinfection, and room ventilation to protect COVID-19. Many students, however, was infected with COVID-19 along with the increase in the patients in Japanese general society. Besides, clusters were noticed in cultural and sports circles in January and February of 2022. In the meeting of the circle leaders held in the February 24th, we confirmed upper limit of participating the training session or meeting, avoiding 3 Cs in locker rooms, and strictly observing the measures of prevention of infection. Here in the second report, we analyzed the efficacy of the measures of prevention of infection mentioned above in 825 COVID-19 patients of Kyushu Sangyo University students, who were detected until the end of June, 2022. Moreover, we examined the effect of the cluster prevention measures. Throughout from the 3rd to 6th waves, the incidence of COVID-19 in Kyushu Sangyo University students was statistically significantly lower than that in the population of twenties in Fukuoka prefecture. These suggest the efficacy of the measures of prevention of infection based on the analysis of the first stage patients. Although cluster once disappeared after the April 10th, one was detected at the end of June.

    We have a mission to bring up people who support the life of people by improving and maintaining mental and physical health. To achieve this goal, it is important for the students to maintain good health conditions of themselves. Based on this notion, we explored the lifestyles in the first year of the students of Faculty of Human Sciences, Kyusyu Sangyo University. Total of 445 students (93%) answered the questionnaire in 2020 and 2021. More than 2/3 students have a habitual physical exercise for >30 min. The frequencies of habitual physical exercise were in the students of Department of Sport Science and Health > Department of Childhood Education > Clinical Psychology. In Department of Sport Science and Health, many students belong sports circles and do physical exercises 5 days or more per week. Whereas, in other two departments, many students personally do physical exercises 4 days or less per week. The frequency of the students who eat breakfast every morning, who sleep early at night, who wake up early in the morning is also higher in Department of Sport Science and Health. There is statistically significant relationship among these lifestyles, suggesting overlapping of health behavior. These finding are valuable in implementing an effective health education.
