Cooperation with home is important throughout the learning path - from daycare center to upper secondary education. Functional education partnering supports a child/young person's growth, wellbeing, and learning.


Goals of cooperation

The goals of cooperation between home, daycare center, school, or educational institution are to  


  • promote the child/young person's growth, wellbeing, and learning 
  • support the sense of community, as well as prevent bullying 
  • encourage parents and city employees to interact and cooperate. 

Cooperation emphasizes seeing the good in the child/young person.
