For private service providers

Are you about to set up a private day-care centre or group family day-care centre in Espoo or become a private family day-care provider?

Instructions for starting, modifying and terminating your operations is available in the Starting or ending private early childhood education operations and changes in operations (docx, 490 Kt)

Espoo supports the setting up of a private day-care centre or group family day-care centre by providing a start-up grant.

Private early childhood education operations are supported by paying private day care allowance for children in private early childhood education.

Play park carer

Play parks are public playing areas built by the City of Espoo meant for use by the residents. Private play park carers may offer their services in the play parks. The activities are subject to a fee and the play park carers choose themselves the children attending the activities. The city monitors the play park carer activities.
