The worksite is the non-registered childcare facility where the host works. In Japan, there is an big issue that the number of children on waiting lists is increasing these days. Because the number of parents who are both working is increasing and they look for some registered childcare facilities to leave their child there. And many registered facilities cancels parent's application because of beyond its capacity. The host works for parents who can't leave their child at such a registered childcare facilities with various reasons.
