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.

The application period for pre-primary education for the schoolyear 2022–2023 is 10–21 January 2022.
