Neighbourhood Support Child Care Project

175. Under the Neighbourhood Support Child Care Project launched in 2008, service operators recruit child carers to provide families in their neighbourhood with flexible day child care services at home, as a way to foster the spirit of mutual help in the community.  To better meet the keen demand for day child care services, the Government will review the implementation mode and effectiveness of the project, including the need for home‑based child carers to undergo certified training and the level of their pay, with a view to enhancing service quality as well as attracting more people to become home‑based child carers.  The review is expected to be completed by mid‑2023.
