Applying for early childhood education with paper application
You can use the paper form to apply for early childhood education if you or your family do not have Finnish personal identity codes or online banking credentials, you and your family are unable to apply online for other reasons, or a member of your family has a non-disclosure for personal safety reasons. Return the paper application primarily by post to the following address: Service guidance for early childhood education, Töysänkatu 2 D, PO Box 51300, 00099 City of Helsinki. We also accept paper applications at playgrounds (except playgrounds Seppä, Loru and Santahamina).
Families moving to Helsinki from abroad or another city: We recommend you apply for a place in early childhood education before you move to Helsinki. You can apply from abroad or from another city with the paper application, even if you do not yet have an address in Helsinki or a Finnish personal identity code. Your personal details can be edited later.
