Preparatory Instruction for 6-year-olds

Instruction preparing for basic education is arranged for those children with immigrant backgrounds whose Finnish-language proficiency is not sufficient for studying in a pre-primary education group.

Preparatory instruction is given on schooldays, five hours per day. Four hours of instruction will be given as part of pre-primary education and one hour will be arranged in a smaller group.

Guardians shall enroll their children in pre-primary education, after which applying for preparatory instruction will be agreed together with the child's guardians, the pre-primary education place, and the language and cultural coordinators.
