Application for club activities

Guardians can use this application to apply for a place in City of Helsinki club activities.


The instructions on the application form will guide you in completing the application. Any missing or incorrect information will be marked in red in the navigation pane on the left and on the summary page. The submit button will only be activated when all of the mandatory fields on the application have been completed. The application can no longer be edited after it has been submitted, but previously submitted applications can be used as a template for the applications of siblings, for example.

You can save the application as a draft and edit the draft later in your personal e-services folder. The draft will be deleted when you submit the application.

The submitted application will be saved in the applicant's e-services folder, the e-services archive system and the early childhood education and pre-primary education client information system of the Education Division. The service will notify the user when the application has been submitted successfully and provide the user with a case number that the applicant can use to monitor the status of the application in their e-services folder. The status of a submitted application waiting to be processed is sent. When the application is opened for processing, the status will change to in progress.

All decisions on application are made with the client's wishes in mind. Places in clubs are granted when vacancies are available in the desired unit.

Decisions are sent electronically to the guardian living at the same address as the child in their personal e-services folder, if they have a folder. Decisions are also sent electronically to the guardian not living at the same address as the child, if the guardians are co-guardians and the co-guardian has a personal e-services folder.
