Early childhood education is a statutory pedagogical activity organized by the municipality.

Early childhood education can be applied for all year round. However, the application must be submitted no later than four (4) months before the child needs care.

In order to facilitate the planning of activities, applications for autumn should be submitted by March at the latest. If the child needs evening and night care as well as weekend care due to the guardians’ shift work, this must be mentioned in the application.

However, if the need for care is due to employment, studies or training and the start of the need cannot be predicted, a daycare place must be applied for as soon as possible, but no later than two weeks before the child needs care. If income changes, new income information must be submitted to Pietarsaari early childhood education. Income information is registered via the electronic form on our website “report of income information”. If this is not possible, you can send the income statement by post or deliver it to our mailbox outside the town hall. ( Strengberginkatu 1 ) The postal address is Sivistyslaitos, PO 41, 68601 Pietarsaari.
