Basic education implements the child’s rights for learning and personal well-being. The modules that support teaching strengthen the children’s involvement, activity, and knowledge of culture and nature, and encourage the children to exercise, examine, express themselves, and experience art and entrepreneurship amongst other things.

Teaching in schools is based on the curriculum, which in turn is based on laws and regulations. The curriculum illustrates practical school work and all schools must follow it, which means it is a standard. The National Board of Education has approved the national core curriculum of basic education, and the municipality-specific section of Turku City basic education curriculum for years 1–9 is based on it. Additionally, school-specific specifications for organizing teaching have been described on the schools’ curriculums or school year plans.
