Service vouchers for private day care are granted for children entitled to day care who are attending a private day-care centre or family-group day-care centre or who are being cared for by a childminder.
Electronic application: you can access electronic services.
If it is not possible to submit an electronic application, paper applications can be printed out here. Decisions on the right to service vouchers are made at the Centre for Early Childhood Education Services. Families are informed about the decisions by mail or electronically, according to their choice.
Grounds for granting service vouchers
Service vouchers for day care are specific to each child. It is not possible to receive a private care subsidy or home care subsidy when using service vouchers. Service vouchers are granted on the basis of the parents’ work or studies. If there are particularly strong reasons, service vouchers can be granted in other circumstances, based on a statement from an expert.
Service vouchers for private day-care centres for children under the pre-primary education age (until 31 July in the year in which the right to pre-primary education begins) can be granted for part-time or full-time day care for no more than 10 days per month, even if one of the parents stays at home, if this is deemed necessary for ensuring early childhood education.
