Yokohama Childcare Support System
This is a system of mutual support for childcare with remuneration covering the whole region. Under this system, people who wish to leave their children in the care of someone register as user members, and people who are offering to take care of children register as provider members. The services provided under this initiative include taking children to and from daycare centers, and temporary care for when guardians need to take a break.
To register as a user member, you need to take part in an orientation session. Applications are also open for those who wish to become provider members (applicants are required to undergo training).
