Check out the 3,147 childcare centers all over the country through a portal called "i-sarang."
Among multicultural families, some need to leave their children at childcare centers until after 6 PM, especially when both of the parents are working. However, it is not easy to find childcare centers that open until later.
For this reason, Ministry of Health and Welfare is operating a system connecting the parents who need to leave their children at childcare centers until later and childcare centers that operate all-day classes until after 6 PM.
On the portal "i-sarang" (www.childcare.go.kr), you can check the information voluntarily registered by 9,723 childcare centers all over the country.
It turned out that 3,147 childcare centers run more than 2 all-day classes until after 6 PM.
Therefore, parents can find the childcare centers that meet their needs by looking up comprehensive information on the centers, including the waiting list status, information notification, and evaluation and certification, along with information on all-day classes after 6 PM.
Especially, if you are looking for childcare centers that run for longer hours, you can check on portals such as "i-sarang" and "Bokjiro" for information on childcare classes that operate until after 6 PM, including classroom composition (number of children by age and number of nursing teachers), program, and shuttle bus information before asking for an entrance counseling.
As for childcare centers, the centers can register and edit information regarding children recruitment and the status of all-day classes. Even for the childcare centers that do not disclose information on all-day classes, if there are children who stay at the centers after 6 PM, they should provide the same nursing program as before 6 PM.
An officer from Ministry of Health and Welfare said, "We expect it to be easier for multicultural families and dual-income parents to find childcare centers that suit their needs and for the childcare centers that have all-day classes to be able to recruit children more actively. For more stable operation of all-day classes and to relieve the burden of teachers, we are planning to send assistant teacher for the childcare centers that operate all-day classes of a certain size from March, in an exemplary manner."
