Due to a change of information system in the early childhood education and care services, the exact date on which the pre-primary education decisions will be sent cannot yet be confirmed. Please follow the related updates on the Latest news page.
The city reserves each child born in 2015 a place in pre-primary education based on the address and language information found in the Population Information System. Children attending language immersion education for five-year-olds are assigned a pre-primary education place in a language immersion group.
The data from the Population Information System was retrieved in October 2020. If your family has moved to Kokkola after that, or your family has moved within the municipality, please contact the early childhood education office.
The decision on granting a child a place in pre-primary education will be sent to the child´s guardian by 30 April 2021. Along with the decision, you will receive instructions on how to apply for school transportation, complementary day care services and transfer to another pre-primary education unit. If you do not receive a letter by 1 May 2021, please contact the early childhood education office.
The decision on pre-primary education placement will be sent electronically if you have activated Suomi.fi Messages in the Suomi.fi service. Please visit the website to activate the electronic messages. If you have not activated Suomi.fi Messages to communicate with different authorities electronically, you will receive the decision by mail in 2–7 days after it is sent.
