The daycare in Jakobstad will gradually implement an electronic system in which registrations of presence and daycare reservations are made.
The system is called Päikky. Registration is done with the mobile phone of the kindergarten. When the child arrives at the kindergarten, a so called “tag” is scanned with the phone to make the registration. The procedure is the same before the child goes home. The tag does not contain any information whatsoever about the child; it is merely a number to identify the child in the system. If you happen to forget the tag; registration can also be done manually on the phone.
You can find more information about this in the enclosed instructions, and the kindergarten/daycare personnel can also help if need be.

There is also a daycare reservation function included in the system.
Parents should make reservations for the daycare hours for the following week at least a week in advance; this is done on the computer. The enclosed instructions contain more information about this as well. The reservation is used as the basis for the daycare fees.

The reason for implementing this system is to utilize the available technique so as to make more time for the children, as well as make it easier to plan the working hours for the personnel and daycare activities.
If you need additional information, please consult the manager of the kindergarten/daycare.
