The early childhood education of the City of Turku has introduced the Päikky system, which is a system for planning and monitoring the care times of children, to be used by the guardians.
The care times should be planned in as much detail as possible. Together with the actual presence times of the child, the planned times form the basis for the invoiced amount of care hours per month.
Turku offers day care, preschool education and playschool activities for children under school age. After parental leave the child can stay at home care or go to municipal or private day care.
With the day care application form you can apply for a place in municipal day care, municipal family or three-family day care, or a service voucher for private day care. You should apply for a place at least four months before the beginning of your need for child day care. If you need a day care place because of sudden employment, training or studies, you should apply at least two weeks before the beginning of your need.
