Family daycare at the caregiver's home

A family daycare caregiver is an employee of the City of Helsinki who provides care for children in their own home.
The maximum group size is four children. The group can also include a pre-schooler or a schoolchild in the afternoon.

The care provider and the guardians agree on the hours of care separately for each child based on the guardians' working hours, studies or other needs. Family daycare caregivers generally work for 8-9 hours a day, for an average of 40 hours a week.

In the caregiver's absence, we will provide substitute care for the child at a daycare centre, group family daycare centre or in the group of another family daycare caregiver.
