Experts at Skanssi’s Monitori help families in finding the best options for their early childhood education needs every Monday 11.00–18.00
An early childhood education service counsellor is present at Monitori on Mondays between 11.00 and 18.00. The service counsellor helps parents to find the option best suited for their circumstances – it is possible to choose from day care, family day care, open early childhood education, and playschool activities.
Day with a maid
This tour is planned for children in kindergarten or preschool. The maid of Kylämäki will act as your guide and tell the little visiting maids and farmworkers about the grounds and chores in the village.
The domestic animals in Kylämäki are a favourite amongst children and will no doubt get lots of attention during this tour. The dwellers of the Vähä-Kohmo farm will tell you many interesting, and even a bit thrilling, stories about the old days.
The duration of the free preschool education is at least 700 hours per year, that is, approximately four hours a day. The year of early childhood education follows mainly the periods of work and holidays at school.
There are municipal and private day care centres in the City of Turku. There is also private family day care which is monitored by the municipality.
Information about municipal day care centres can be found on the bottom of the page, or they can be browsed by district.
Five-year-old children born in 2013 will be provided with free-of-charge early childhood education in Turku as part of a trial programme for the entire year running from 1 August 2018 to 31 July 2019.
