In addition to municipal family day care, there is also private family day care which is monitored by the municipality.
Group family day care is suitable for children aged 1 to 5 years. In group family day care two childminders look after a maximum of eight children.
Also a person who is hired by a family as a nanny to look after the child at the family’s home is considered to provide private day care. The nanny can be a grandparent, for example, but not a member of the same household.
