Private Family Day Care

Private childminders in the City of Turku are monitored by the municipality. To apply for family day care and group family day care operating with private day care allowance, please contact the place of care directly.

Also a nanny who is hired by a family to look after their child at their home is considered to provide private day care. The nanny can be a grandparent, for example, but not a member of the same household.

The prerequisites for receiving private day care allowance are that the child is under school age and does not have a place in municipal day care. A family residing in Turku gets municipal allowance in addition to private day care allowance.
