Municipal Family Day Care

  • Service
  • Turku
  • Public service

Family day care is organized at the childminder’s home.

In three-family day care 1–4 families form a circle. The children and the municipal childminder stay at each family’s home in turn. The family purchases and prepares the meals for the day, and the city in turn compensates for this. If needed, the city can borrow necessary equipment, for example a twin stroller.

The maximum size of a group for both forms of day care is four children, including the childminder’s own children.

During the vacations of the childminder, the children will be placed in backup day care. For children over 3 the backup is normally a day care centre and for younger children another family day care, if possible.

To whom and on what terms

Family day care and Länsikeskus and Runosmäki area.
