Fukuoka Family Support Center

Sending child I want to go to work Pre-school Elementary school students

This center brings together those who want support for child-rearing ("Requesting Members") and others who want to support parents in child-rearing ("Providing Members" ).
Members provide mutual support for raising children in the community. Any reason for making a request is acceptable.
For example:

  • If you cannot pick up your child from the day-care center due to your work schedule.
  • If you are worried about your child alone being home alone after returning from after-school childcare.
  • If you are tired from childcare and would like to go shopping alone for a change of pace.

However, please note the following, as a general rule.
*The Providing Member will look after the child at his/her home.
*If the Providing Member agrees to it, early morning or late night support may be provided, but the child cannot stay overnight.

Eligibility criteria for children to receive this support:

Children from the ages of 3 months to the 6th grade of elementary school
(For children with special needs such as disabilities, support is generally available up to 18 years old.)


Membership registration is required. (Registration: free of charge, advance reservation required)

  • Those who wish to have support for child-rearing (Requesting Members) must reside or work in Fukuoka City, and must take a video training course (about 1 hour) conducted by the Center. (A 3cm X 2.4cm photo of the applicant's face is required.)
  • Those who wish to support childcare (Providing Members) must be physically and mentally healthy, live in Fukuoka City, be able to safely care for children at their home, and must attend a training course conducted by the Center.
