Daycare in daycare centres

Daycare services in Helsinki seek to ensure that children have the opportunity for healthy development. 

Early education and care services promote well-balanced growth, development and learning as well as advancing the personal wellbeing of children.

Daycare centres usually serve from 6:15 to 17:30 on weekdays. Centres providing evening, 24-hour and 7-day care are available for children in need for care outside regular service hours because of their parents' employment or studies.
