Night and shift care

Municipal day care centres are open between 6am and 6 pm. If the child needs day care outside these hours, for example because of the parents' work or study schedule, this is called shift care.

If the child needs day care, in addition to weekdays, at evenings, nights and weekends, this is called around-the-clock care. Night care means that the child needs care on weekdays between 6 pm and 10 pm.

The needed hours for care must be filled in on the care hour form and handed in by 12am the previous monday.

If the child no longer needs shift care, he or she will be placed in a normal day care centre.

Please ask the shift care expert or the care provider for more detailled information about shift care.
