The instructions for guardians on the use of video (in Finnish)

Pre-primary education is provided for children in the year preceding primary school in basic education. Pre-primary school days are four hours long during the regular school year. When you enrol your child in pre-primary education, you can apply for municipal daycare, which supplements the pre-primary education.

Pre-primary education is binding. This means that the child must participate in a year-long activity of pre-primary education or another form of educational activity, which fulfils the compulsory goals for pre-primary education in the year preceding their basic education.

Pre-primary education promotes and supports children's growth, development and learning, and it enables a smooth transition from the pre-primary environment to school. Pre-primary education provides a good basis for life-long learning.

Teaching methods in pre-primary education acknowledge that a child learns through play, movement, creativity, experimentation, observation and questioning in interaction with other children and adults.
