Many prefer kindergarten

Many parents preferred kindergarten as the main child-care provider in the daytime. On the other hand, only a few parents chose relatives or a nanny.

Children aged 1-5, by primary child-care provider in the day time. Per cent.

Children in kindergarten aged 1-5, by type of household. Per cent.

Seventy-nine per cent of children aged 1-2 and as much as 96 per cent of children aged 3-5 attended kindergarten. Ninety per cent of all children between 1 and 5 years participate in kindergarten, while 11 per cent are mainly supervised by the mother, father or others in the household.

Not all will apply for kindergarten

Sixty-eight per cent of children aged 1-2 who do not have a full-time place in kindergarten receive cash-for-care. The parents of 41 per cent of these children would have applied for kindergarten if the cash-for-care support was discontinued. Thirty-four per cent will not apply for kindergarten, while 25 per cent are either undecided or have not answered the question.

Children in kindergarten aged 1-5, by mother's country of birth. Per cent.

Participation in day care facilities for schoolchildren, by number of children aged 6-9 in household. Per cent.

60 per cent in the day care facilities for schoolchildren

More than 60 per cent of children aged 6-9 are participating in the day care facilities for schoolchildren (SFO). Participation in the SFO is more common among children aged 6-7 (75 per cent) than among children aged 8-9 (47 per cent). Most parents reported that their child is home with other family members as a valid reason for the child not participating in the SFO. Participation in other activities and being home alone before and after school were also two of several other relevant reasons for children not attending the SFO.

Participation in day care facilities for schoolchildren, by place of residence. Per cent.
