Advice:When you decide to work, submit your application form to the city office as soon as possible. It might take some time (1 or 2 month) that the city decides it is O.K. or not. If you want to look for the job, you can also use day care 1month in advance.

These are private day care. They are more flexible than public, but the fee is the same as public day care.

I've never tried any day care since I'm not working now. But it's very helpful in the future. Thank you very much!
