The task for early childhood education and care is to advance the holistic growth, development and learning of a child, in close cooperation with the parents. Our early childhood education services offer a child a safe environment for learning and developing, always in consideration with the special features of the child. The early childhood education and care is an important part of the growth and learning path of a child, and it will create a good foundation for person’s lifetime learning abilities.

In Jämsä, the early childhood education and care services include pre-school education, nursery education in day care centres, in-home child care, special childcare centres for people who work non-standard hours, and municipal child care benefits.

Our areas of focus are positive pedagogy and supporting child’s social interaction and emotional skills. In our work, we exploit a special Papilio programme. Our service management software for early childhood education is called Daisy.
