CareFinder is more than just a babysitter matching site

We are the largest source of English speaking babysitters in Japan

CareFinder Heart

CareFinder is the largest English babysitter matching site in Japan.

However, we are more than a babysitter matching site. A lot of work has gone into creating this international community of high quality babysitters. We put each sitter through a strict screening process, interview each one-on-one, confirm permission to work in Japan, and register with the government.

Whether you are looking for an English speaking babysitter, a tutor, a sitter for date nights, for some free-time, or a babysitter to come to your hotel, while you travel through Japan, Carefinder has your babysitting needs covered.

Liability Insurance

CareFinder has liability insurance from Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance. The insurance covers accidents such as body injuries and property damage that occur during babysitting jobs scheduled on the CareFinder platform. While the likelihood of such accidents occurring is quite low, the insurance gives more peace of mind to CareFinder users.
