Even if a family is not using a childcare facility, this temporary service is provided for parents or guardians when they are unable to care for the child at home due to sudden illness, childcare exhaustion, part-time employment, or for other reasons. (Children are eligible from 6 months old until they enter primary school.) Availability and hours of use vary, so please check with the childcare facility for details.
It is also necessary to apply in advance to the childcare facility to use this service.
