For families

The Kotka and Hamina region provides day-care services for children in English and Swedish and education for young people in Swedish. The region offers diverse day-care services from play activities to family day care and flexible shift day care.

The current day care situation is commendable. The maximum queuing time day care placement is four months. Placement may be granted within two weeks in case of unexpected circumstances. It is good to plan day care as early as possible when planning to move to the region.

To balance day care and school, the region offers children and young people many pleasant hobby activities.
