The basis for child welfare in early childhood education is inclusiveness, co-operation with child custodians, skilled staff and safe, healthy premises.
In day care, each child is provided with a child’s own early childhood education plan, which includes goals and measures to support the child’s development, learning and well-being. The plan also records the child’s potential development and learning support and its implementation. The plan is made in cooperation with parents.
Children participate in pre-school years one year before the beginning of compulsory school. Pre-primary education is organized in the city’s kindergartens and preschool groups in schools.
