A service voucher is one way of arranging the municipality's statutory early childhood education services. The service voucher will be introduced for early childhood education services offered by private day-care centres. The city contributes to the costs of private early childhood education by granting a child-specific service voucher to families. The municipality grants a service voucher for a child's early childhood education. You apply for a service voucher in the same way as you would apply for municipal early childhood education, by filling in an application using Espoo's online system (espoonvarhaiskasvatus.fi). When filling in the application, select under 'Preferred units' the service voucher unit that you prefer. It is recommended to contact the day-care centre at the latest after submitting an application.
