Applying for Day Care

An application for day care can be made throughout the year. An application should be made four months prior to the expected starting day. If the need for day care cannot be anticipated due to employment or studies, the municipality is required to arrange childcare within two weeks after submission of the application.

Each child is entitled to day care until the beginning of compulsory education.
