Pupils commencing grades one and two: applications are now being accepted for morning and afternoon activities
The application period for morning and afternoon activities during the next school year 2022–2023 in Tampere has begun. This application period concerns children who are currently participating in preschool education and will start school in August 2022. Furthermore, this application period concerns first grade pupils who will commence in the second grade in August 2022. Applications must be submitted by 23 January 2022.
Pupils in the first and second grades in basic education have the possibility to apply for the morning and afternoon activities if both parents are working or studying.
A place can also be granted due to other special reasons. Other special reasons are compelling needs of the family or the child, and decisions are made on a case-by-case basis. In order to refer to a special reason, the guardian must include in the application an expert analysis or assessment of the child’s need.
Afternoon activities are available after school hours from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. Some groups also offer morning activities from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., depending on demand.
Families may select their requirement for the services from among three options: 1–3 h/day, 3–4.5 h/day or 4.5–6 h/day. The service fees are determined according to the option chosen. In the groups offering morning activities, the hours can be divided between the morning and the afternoon in such a way that the total number of hours chosen by the family does not exceed the limit.
The application is submitted through the Wilma system between 7 January and 23 January 2022. Additional information and a link to the electronic Wilma system are available on the morning and afternoon activities website of the City of Tampere.
More information about the activity can also be requested via e-mail at apip.palveluohjaus(at)tampere.fi and from schools.
