City Launches Babysitter Matchmaking Website

Mayor Ko Wen-je inaugurated the city’s babysitter matchmaking platform (https://findchildcare.taipei/) during a press event at Xinyi Parent-Child Center on December 15.

Stressing that children are the hope of the future, the mayor noted that the city government has invested various resources into childcare. With the government taking on the responsibility of “nanny screening,” the platform will offer credibility and assurance for parents seeking childcare service.
According to Ko, Taipei currently boasts 100 private nursery centers, 15 publicly-sponsored and privately-managed childcrae centers, as well as 3 community babysitter units. The city aims to expand the scale of community childrearing service by naming it as one of its priority policies for 2016.
Ko added that the establishment of the matchmaking website embodies his vision to digitize government services. Young parents, mostly from a generation well-acquainted with the Internet, will find it convenient to access a registry comprising 3,325 qualified babysitters through the platform.
The ‘findchildcare.taipei’ website, operated by Child Welfare League Foundation, offers information on certified nannies such as age, experience, daycare locations, religion, qualifications, service availability, and more.
