Day Cares For Sick Children In Fukuoka


NOTE: I have not yet tried the services below but thought it useful to share with you. Not knowing about such places has cost me tens of thousands of yen in work absences.

What are these places?

These are mostly pediatric clinics and some hoikuens designated to provide temporary day care for sick children or those recovering from illnesses. Parents who are unable to take care of their children, due to work or other reasons, can admit their children in these care centers. Registration is required beforehand and the fee is usually ¥2,000 per child per day. This cost does not include lunch and snacks. Parents have to provide lunch separately. Only children between 0 years (that’s children under 1 yr old) up to elementary Grade 3 are eligible.

Where are these day cares?

Altogether, there are about 10 such facilities  in Fukuoka.
