Childcare

We have organized a free childcare service in the campus for the children of the conference participants. If you are planning to bring with a child who will need childcare, please contact us: childhood2018@jyu.fi

The University shall provide 1-3 students of early childhood education to look after the children. The number of caretakers present depends on the amount of children participating in childcare service. Childcare service will be organized at the campus in the building X, in the classrooms X207 and X209, that include toys and pedagogical material for children aged between 1 and 7 years. There is also a kitchen in one of the classrooms. During childcare service, children will be able to play, do pedagogical activities, sleep, and eat. Childcare service will be free of charge. The guardian is, however, responsible to bring along suitable food and snacks for his/her child. One of the classrooms includes a fridge, a microwave, an oven, and a stove. The caretakers can prepare food brought by the guardian and feed the child. The guardian is fully responsible of his/her child during the childcare, even though there will be students looking after and taking care of the children. The service will be available only for those children, whose guardian has beforehand contacted the organizers (childhood2018@jyu.fi) and signed childcare contract.
