Day care centres
Day care centres offer full-time or part-time day care for children under school age. The children’s age and developmental level are taken into consideration when forming the groups.
Day care centres are usually open 6.30 am to 5 pm, and if necessary, 6 am to 5.30 pm. In addition Kelttu day care center offers 24 hour care, and four centres have extended opening hours between 5.30 am to 9.30 pm.

Day care activity is planned and goal oriented. Plans for day care and educational objectives for each child are set together with the parents. Trained personnel attends to children’s care, upbringing and teaching.
