Supplementary day care is available in the morning before pre-primary education begins and in the afternoon after pre-primary education is over.

Basic information and legislation

There are four hours of pre-primary education every morning. If a child participates in pre-primary education at a day-care centre, the afternoon following the teaching consists of normal day-care centre activities. After pre-primary education provided at a lower comprehensive school, the children either go home or are accompanied to a day-care centre or, for example, club activities.

The child’s guardian is responsible for ensuring that the child participates in pre-primary education or activities that meet its objectives during the school year that precedes the start of compulsory education.
