Hi! My name is Pree and I am available for baby sitting in tokyo (mon-fri only) from November 2013. I am a very responsible and caring individual. I have previous day care experience from India. I speak english, no japanese.

Interested families can answer my message here and I will get in touch with you. Then we can meet/have a telephonic interview as I understand safety of your child is first priority.

Thank you for your time! :-)

Hello to all momys out there!!!
my husband and I, along with our 3 year old boy will be coming to Tokyo this summer from the end of June to the end of September. We have been to Tokyo twice already so...we're quite familiar with the surroundings. We are coming from New York but my husband and I are Canadian. I'm trying to start a momy/child playgroup with English or French speaking momys. We could organize daily playdates at the park and have the kids eat lunch together and then retire home for naptimes. I just know how hard it is to be in a small apartment with nobody to hang out with...I did that the first 2 times we were here!! So if there is someone out there who wants to start this international playgroup with me let me know!! You can contact me via E-MAIL :
Looking forward to hearing from you!!

There will be storytelling, singing, dancing, and free play-an opportunity to have a cultural and language exchange. A very competent and entretaining Filipina who is fluent in english and very good with kids/babies will look after the children. Parent's or Guardian's participation is very much encouraged.

Our place is about 10-15 minute walk from Hiroo, Ebisu, or Shibuya station.

My name is Anne and and I am 25 years old. I have got a child who is 1 year old and I am living in Yokohama (Naka-Ku) for 18 months. I look for different possibilities of babysitting or daycare for him, because I would like to do sport and to have Japanese lessons and I think it is very difficult to find that. Thank you for giving me different solutions.
