All children attend pre-primary education in the year they turn 6, which is one year before the start of comprehensive school. During the year, children learn social skills through playing, moving, exploring, and artistic activities to strengthen their self-esteem. At the same time they get familiar with letters, numbers, the nature, and the urban environment. Pre-primary education considers the children’s individual needs and ways of learning.
Pre-primary education is provided one year before the start of school. It is provided for three to four hours a day during school hours. When you apply for pre-primary education, you can also apply for early childhood education if your child needs daycare in addition to the pre-primary education.
Please contact Early childhood education services for more information.
