A service voucher is one way of providing a municipality’s statutory early childhood education services. The user of a service voucher gets to choose a private early childhood education provider among those approved by the municipality.
In connection with approving the budget, the City Council decided to introduce service vouchers as of 1 August 2021. Families can apply for a service voucher for a private early childhood education unit from March 2021. We will provide further information on how to apply as the process moves forward.
