A family day-care provider is an employee of the municipality, who has completed the vocational qualification of a family day-care provider, family day-care provider course or some other degree in early childhood education. He/she works at his/her own home that has been approved as family day-care premises. Operations of a family day-care provider are guided by the early childhood education plan and individual early childhood education plans of the children that are prepared together with the parents. Family day care offers early childhood education for children in a small group. Playing and domestic chores create the basis for learning new things. The maximum number of children in a group is four, including the provider's own children under school age. In addition, one child attending pre-primary education may be placed in the group for afternoons. Transports between the family day care and pre-primary education premises of a child are ensured by the parents.

Child group size in family day care
The maximum number of children in a group is four, including the provider’s own children under school age. In addition, one child attending pre-primary education may be placed in the group for afternoons. Transports between the family day care and pre-primary education premises of a child are ensured by the parents.

Care hours
In family day care, the care provider’s working hours are determined by the children’s care hours. The daily care hours are primarily 8–9 hours. The care hours are agreed in detail before early childhood education begins.

Backup care
A backup care place is agreed for each child when day care begins. The backup care place can be, for example, a day-care centre or group family day-care centre.
