Activities and clubs for families and children

In Finland the extracurricular activities for children are mostly arranged in the evenings by outside providers (sports-clubs, music clubs etc.). Extracurricular activities arranged by the schools are very limited and vary between the schools.

It is normal for the parents to take children to the activities in the evenings and take part of the club activity when needed.
