Compared to family childcare, the municipal childcare units offer more possibilities for you to choose when your child is at care.
In a childcare group, per one adult with educational responsibility there can be at most four children under the age of 3 or seven children over the age of 3. The personnel consists of kindergarten teachers and childcarers.
The normal opening hours of the day care units is 6.30 am to 5 pm. The opening hours can vary from unit to unit.
