Residential Parks

Residential parks provide guided outdoor and indoor activities.

Parents can make requests and develop the content of the activities together with the personnel. The activities include, for instance, free socializing and playing, arts and crafts, music, exercise, and trips. The residential parks publish more detailed weekly and monthly programs at vantaa.fi and on the bulletin boards in parks. Residential parks are meant for children of all ages and their guardians. Small children can participate in the activities with their guardian or childminder. Some of the residential parks are closed during the summer, at least for July.

Open Day Care Centers

Open day care centers are intended for under school aged children in home care and their guardians or childminders. Activities are free of charge and no preregistration is required. The basic idea of open day care is that parents take care of their children while they get to socialize with others. Parents can make requests and develop the content of the activities together with the personnel.

The activities include, for instance, free socializing and playing, arts and crafts, music, exercise, and trips. More detailed weekly and monthly programs can be viewed on the spot. Some of the open day care centers are also on Facebook. In open day care, parents also have an opportunity to get support and discuss parenting, child's development, and everyday family life.

Additionally, open day care centers sometimes provide free clubs for small children. You can get more information about the open day care services from the organizers.
