The daycare center registration process for foreigner residents has been revised starting from December 28th 2017.
Starting from 2018, foreign residents have to visit the daycare center directly and fill out the application form.
However, multiculture families (whose spouse is Korean) can register through the new website (http://www.childcare.go.kr).
If your family is residing in Seorae-Maeul (Banpo-dong area), here is a list of daycare centers:
30, Bangbae-roe 32-gil, Seocho-gu, Seoul
(children from 1 year old to 3 years old)
42, Bangbae-ro 39-gil, Seocho-gu, Seoul
13, Seorae-ro, Seocho-gu, Seoul
02-593-2933 | http://hesedseoul.com
(children from 2 years old to 6 years old, English specialized)
Those daycare centers are private institutes. We do not recommend public daycare centers because normally it takes 2 or 3 years to enter unless families meet some special requirements(three children, working couple, disabled, etc.)
Existing users of the website <iseoul.seoul.go.kr> can check their waiting list on the website <www.childcare.go.kr>(You will have to register once again)
