Last updated date:2022/9/14

Temporary childcare services

Sometimes, guardians may have temporary difficulty taking care of a child who does not usually go to a daycare center (including Yokohama nursery rooms, small-scale childcare services, and the daycare section of certified combined nursery and kindergarten facilities) at home due to work, illness or other reasons. In such cases, they can entrust their child to a daycare center on a temporary basis.
*The fee for use of this service, hours of use, age ranges of children that can be accepted, etc. depend on the facility in
 question.
*There is only one licensed nursery facility in Yokohama City that provides temporary childcare services at night.

Temporary childcare for infants

Guardians can use temporary childcare for infants for whatever reason, whether they have an errand to run or just need a bit of a break.
To take advantage of this service, you need to register in advance and make a booking.

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).
