Child rearing partnership and substitute arrangements

Child rearing partnership

At the outset of a care relationship, the parents and care provider have a start-up discussion. Within about two months from the beginning of the care, the parents and care provider create an early education plan for the child, which will be assessed once every operating period.

The three-family care provider is an employee of the City of Helsinki, whose average working hours are 40 hours a week. If the daily working hours exceed eight hours, the care provider’s hours will be balanced by providing days off.

Substitute arrangements

The parents are responsible for the care of a sick or convalescent child. In the absence of the care provider, substitute care for the children is arranged in accordance with a plan prepared in advance. Substitute care primarily takes place in a group family daycare unit or a daycare centre.
