Babysitter Utilization Support (university contract)

1. Information on the Babysitting Utilization Support Program to help in cases where usual childcare is not available for all faculty members and students (Mothernet)           ― infants/postnatal children, overtime work, working on holidays, and other circumstances.―

 

 Hitotsubashi University has recently concluded a corporate contract with Mothernet Corporation(https://www.mothernet.co.jp/) to implement the “Program to Support the Research Activities of Female Researchers,” creating a babysitter dispatch childcare support service.

Participants in the program must register their children in advance. In case your child has a sudden fever and cannot attend daycare, you can have a babysitter dispatched to your home to watch over and care for your child by making a reservation by telephone or email. Furthermore, we can arrange childcare at home during overtime hours or on holidays if you are unable to use your usual childcare for some other reason.
