Taking the child to the Kindergarten and picking him/her up


Exchange of information and co-operation














1. Taking the child to the Kindergarten and picking him/her up

  • The Kindergarten is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Kindergarten from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Evening care from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. 

  • The child should be taken to the Kindergarten between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. so that he/she can participate in all the activities following breakfast.
  • The child should be picked up according to the agreed schedule either:

at the latest by 3 p.m.

or at the latest by 6 p.m.

  • If you cannot pick the child up on time, please inform the teacher of this in order to agree on a different arrangement.
  • The Kindergarten is closed on public holidays and during the autumn, winter and spring school holidays.
  • During summer period the Kindergarten acts as a day care and is opened until 3 p.m.
  • In order to make the child’s life more comfortable in the Kindergarten it would be reasonable to adjust his/her daily schedule to that of the Kindergarten.
  • When the child joins to the Kindergarten for the first time, one of the child’s parents has a right to stay in the Kindergarten with him/her for one week for the smoother accommodation. Please take the teachers’ advice about the length and necessity of this period into consideration.
  • Start your day peacefully and without rushing. Follow your child to his/her group and hand him/her over to the teacher. The teacher can only take responsibility for your child if she knows that the child has been placed under her care.
  • Please let us know if the child gets ill or cannot come to the Kindergarten for some other reason. It would also be nice if you inform us before the child returns to the Kindergarten.
  • Please also let us know if someone other than the mother or father is going to pick the child up from the Kindergarten. We cannot hand the child over to a stranger.




2. Exchange of information and co-operation

  • We kindly ask that information concerning the child’s day (eating, sleeping, participation in activities, time of going home) has been given to the teacher by a parent.
  • Please get acquainted with the rules and procedures of the Kindergarten.
  • Please do not hesitate to ask the teachers and the head of the Kindergarten for any advice or assistance you may need. If there is anything that annoys you, please tell us openly about it.
  • We will keep you informed about events and topical issues in the Kindergarten using the display stand. The weekly schedule, the menu for the week and teachers’ phone numbers are also detailed at the display stand.
  • Have a sincere interest in your child’s performance in the Kindergarten. Praise and encourage your child!
  • Acknowledge also the teacher’s work!
  • Your positive and benevolent attitude towards the Kindergarten, the teachers and your child’s playmates makes co-operation even better.
  • Good co-operation between parents and teachers is a good basis for the integration of children and will make them feel secure in the Kindergarten.
  • In spring the parents have an opportunity to have a longer conversation with the teacher about your child’s development and achievements.
  • In December and at the end of the school year the teacher adds a short overview of child’s development and his/her achievements in to his/her Port Folio.



  • Dress your child comfortably and according to the weather.
  • For playing outside please provide the child with clothes which can be soiled without causing problems.
  • During the period when mittens should be worn, please try to avoid gloves for children under 5 years old.
  • Please keep extra clothing and socks or stockings in the Kindergarten for emergencies.
  • In order to avoid accidental swapping of clothes and footwear mark them with your child’s name.
  • If you child is still using nappies please make sure that there is a sufficient stock available in the Kindergarten.



  • Three meals are offered at the Kindergarten:

breakfast 9:00 a.m.

lunch 12:30 p.m.

evening snack 3:30 p.m. 

  • Please inform the personnel of the Kindergarten if your child has any allergies.
  • Please do not give your child any sweets or any other food, especially chewing-gum to take to the Kindergarten!
  • Trust the choice of food in the Kindergarten. It is tasty and we know how to accustom your child to novel food.




5. Toys

  • Children can only bring their own toys to the Kindergarten on Wednesdays and not more than 1 at the time. The toy must be marked and bigger than 10 cm. Please help your child to follow this rule as this makes it easier for other parents as well.
  • Taking your own toys to the Kindergarten means that other children can also play with them.
  • The teachers are not responsible for the loss or damage of the toys.



6. Birthdays

  • We celebrate the birthdays of children with a birthday circle and a birthday song.
  • The birthday child may also treat others with a birthday cake or other sweets after lunch.



7. Illness

  • A sick child must stay at home. Please do not bring a sick child to the Kindergarten! A serious rhinitis is also an illness.
  • If a child gets ill while being in the Kindergarten we will immediately inform his/her parents about it. If necessary, we offer first aid.
  • We will never give any medicines to children in the Kindergarten.
  • If the child or close family members (brothers, sisters) have caught a contagious disease please make sure to inform the Kindergarten about it.
