Early childhood education

The City of Espoo provides multiform early childhood education for children under school age, and pre-primary education for those of the pre-primary education age. The goal of early childhood education is to promote the age- and development-appropriate overall growth, development, health and well-being of each child as well as to support the preconditions of the child’s learning. Early childhood education is implemented in an entity formed by care, upbringing and teaching.
