Preschool education


All children have the right to participate in preschool education, one year before the start of compulsory education, for 700 hours a year. Preschool education is organised according to the school year for five days a week, four hours a day from 9 am to 1 pm.

Preschool education takes place in the Puumala comprehensive school preschool group. The preschool class is in the school wing of the day-care building (Kappalaisenkuja 5). Preschool and 1st class students work together in flexible pre- and primary education groups. Preschool education works closely with comprehensive education.
