Three-family daycare

Family daycare is also arranged in children's homes by three-family daycare providers. A daycare group comprises four children from one or several families. The care is offered in the families’ homes.

Daycare group in three-family daycare

One group comprises four children under school age. One child in the preschool age who requires part time daycare can be included in the group. The care circle can comprise 1 to 4 families. The care activities usually take place in a different family’s home each week. Three family daycare requires flexibility and teamwork skills from the parents.

Children in three-family daycare are insured during the care days. The city insurance does not cover damage to any items.
