The researcher conducted focus group and in-depth interviews with four childcare centers. The author also interviewed a government employee, an activist in『Co-care and Community Education』, and officials related to the social economic center. In order to examine the public meaning of child care in the social cooperative children's center, it was analyzed from the perspective of community infrastructure, participation, network, cooperation and reciprocity, and child rights. Research results as follows: first of all, the members of the social cooperative children's centers are actively involved in management and child care, and trust is formed through democratic decision making. Second, the social cooperative children's centers have loose links and aims for solidarity through a coalition. Third, the social cooperative children's centers provide time and nature friendly space for children and practice child care in terms of child-centered focus, which places importance on children's right to happiness. Fourth, the social cooperative children's centers are caring together, are interested in the village and contributes to th community. Finally, The value of cooperation and mutual benefit is realized through care and management together. In short, the social cooperative children's center is a model as a third party to practice the public interest in childcare.
