Preparatory preschool education

Preparatory preschool education (valmistava esiopetus) is intended for 7-year-old children who do not yet speak Finnish well enough. Preparatory preschool education strengthens the child's skills in Finnish in order to make their transition to school easier.

Before you apply for a place in preparatory preschool education for your child, you must enrol your child in preschool (esiopetus).

The Swedish-language preschools do not organise preparatory preschool education.
