Children's day care in private families means taking care of children in private homes or other home-like surroundings. The forms of family day care in Kittilä are day care that takes place in a caretaker's home, three-family day care and group family day care centres. One family caretaker can take care of four children (under school age) at the most, including her own children. A fifth child in the group can be a preschool child or a schoolchild that needs half-day care.
A group-family day care centre consists of 2-3 caretakers and mostly 12 children. A special kindergarten teacher – a private family day care instructor works as the immediate supervisor for both caretakers who work in their own homes and group-family day care centres. The task of the supervisor is to guide and support caretaking and education in private family day care and group family day care. In family day care the charges and number of meals, for instance, are the same as in day care centres. An application for family day care is the general day care application that must be delivered in the day care office. Address: Kittilän kunta, Päivähoitotoimisto, Valtatie 15, 99100 Kittilä.
