Afternoon activities

Helsinki's public playgrounds organise afternoon activities for schoolchildren. In addition to this, schools, organisations, parishes and private service providers organise group-based afternoon activities at schools or facilities near schools for 1st and 2nd graders and pupils who need special support. The City also organises afternoon activities for schoolchildren with intellectual disabilities and autism.

Afternoon activities are leisure time activities that support the educational work of homes and schools. In addition to participating in supervised activities, the children participating in afternoon activities can also focus on their own play. Afternoon activities are held both in and outdoors. The children are covered by the City's voluntary accident insurance. Children are covered for the duration of the afternoon activities.

Participation in the afternoon activities organised by schools as part of basic education is subject to a fee. The snacks provided during afternoon activities organised at public playgrounds are subject to a fee. Families can apply for reduced fees on the basis of their incomes.

Application to both types of afternoon activities is made for the entire school year with specific forms. Afternoon activities are not available during school holidays or on exceptional school days falling on Saturdays.

School afternoon activities are organised at approximately 200 locations, while playground afternoon activities for schoolchildren are organised at approximately 65 playgrounds.
