Applying for early education
If your child needs daycare (early childhood education), apply for it no later than 4 months before you need a place. There is a queue for day care palces.
You will receive the decision about the day care place by letter or e-mail. You may also expect a phone call from the day care to talk about the daycare start.
In urgent matters (for example when you find work or training), you can apply for day care 2 weeks in advance. An application for day care must be made when you register as a jobseeker or apply to school.
You can fill in the application online if you have:
- your child’s ID number
- your ID number
- parent’s banking credentials
