Daycare and Pre-school Services
The municipalities are responsible for arranging the Early Childhood Educational Services, for their quality and supervision. The goal is to place children with different cultural and linguistic backgrounds to kindergartens and pre-schools in their own residential area.
Each of the children are provided with a personal Curriculum on Early Childhood Education and a Curriculum for Pre-school Education (if attending pre-school). These documents serve as part of the child’s personal Integration Plan.
The importance of the child’s culture and mother tongue is recognised in supporting his/ her development. At the same time, learning the Finnish language is supported from the basis of national plan ”Finnish as a Second Language (S2)”, in every-day situations, in small groups and as individual education.
