Three-family daycare

In three-family daycare, the family daycare caregiver works in the families' homes.

This care is primarily provided in different families' homes on alternate weeks, which is why this type of care requires flexibility and close cooperation. The families take turns preparing food for the group and are compensated for it. A three-family daycare group includes four children under the age of seven. The group can also include a pre-schooler or a schoolchild in the afternoon. The group is formed by children from one to four families.

Children in three-family daycare are covered by insurance while in care. The City of Helsinki's insurance does not cover damage to property.
