We considered appropriate frameworks and functions for the public observation service system and created a 3-stage model for it with logics for observation to ensure the quality of required functions by reducing unintended omission and unevenness due to human characteristics. The study method and tool were used for all children belonging to an elementary school in X district. The public observation support service system based on the 3-stage model with a logic for observation, may facilitate the logical and efficient identification of problems, management of cause analysis results, and reasonable promotion of liaison among those involved in personalized support. This system to support the observation of children’s growth and development provides a basis for creating a value of co-creation. This study provided a basis for maximizing the value of co-creation in public services, aiming to nurture human resources for the future.
